Jabal al-Lawz (Arabic: جبل اللوز‎) (also known as Gebel el-Lawz) is a mountain located in northwest Saudi Arabia, near the Jordan border, above the Gulf of Aqaba at 2580 metres above sea level. The name means 'mountain of almonds'.[2]

Claims made by some writers, including Bob Cornuke, Ron Wyatt and Lennart Moller, that this is the real biblical Mount Sinai have been rejected by such scholars as James Karl Hoffmeier (Professor of Old Testament and Ancient Near Eastern History and Archaeology), who details what he calls Cornuke's "monumental blunders".[3][4] Gordon Franz has studied this topic in depth and has published a refutation of this hypothesis.[5][6]
