Was Mt. Sinai a volcano? The mountain that is commonly called Mt. Sinai is not of volcanic origin. But then again serious scholars are not in agreement of the actual location of the Mountain of God where God manifested himself to Moses. Some of these others locations may be of volcanic origin.

The fact he claimed to preach a Gospel [...
