Confrontation & Escape from Egypt  The Bible frames

Confrontation & Escape from Egypt The Bible frames Exodus as an epic showdown Yahweh verses Pharaoh! Why is this? Pharaoh is the very embodiment of Egypt its culture and its religion. He is more than just a king, but a symbol for Egypts power. We need to remember that Egypt was the most powerful kingdom on Earth so Pharaoh was the most powerful man on earth! Pharaoh was thought of as a son of a god! This showdown is also about Yahweh defeating the Egyptian gods! Confrontation & Escape THE ten meets plague Moses Pharaoh, but Pharaoh refuses to listen to Moses

and the Hebrew God. As a son of the gods, Pharaoh cant submit to Yahweh. Yahweh gives Moses the power to preform all sorts of wonders so that Pharaoh and the Egyptians will eventually believe in the power of the Hebrew God! The Israelites dont follow Moses right away. They only gradually come to have faith and believe that God would lead them, after seeing all the wonderous things God can do. Although Moses is a leader, he has a lot of help! Yahweh preforms miracles and signs! His brother and sister help! Aarons Role: - At the command of Moses stretched out his rod in order to bring on the first of three plagues (Exodus 7:19, 8:1,12). - Moses Attendant too! Miriams Role:

- Miriam inspires the people to follow Moses. - Considered a prophetess. PASSOVER and the End of Captivity Passover: has to do with the very last plague. The last plague was called on Egypt by the very word of Pharaoh. Just as all the new born of Israel was put to death at the beginning of Exodus, now Pharaoh tries to put all the 1st born of Israel to death. Because of this, God will put all the first born Egyptians to death. However, God would not enter a household if they put the blood of the Lamb on their doorposts. The blood of the Lamb on the doorposts told the angel of the Lord to pass over that household thus, Passover! After this, Pharaoh lets the Israelites Go! Passover an Important Event Passover is an important event in the

Bible and for the Jewish People. Marks the Beginning of the Jews Freedom. God fights for and frees His people. Important Symbols: The Blood of the Lamb. God spared those people who spread the Blood of the Lamb on their doorposts. The Lambs Blood becomes a symbol of Gods salvation. The Unleavened Bread. No time to bake fluffy bread! They have to escape Egypt soon! The Final Showdown with Egypt

The Hebrews make it all the way to the Red Sea. They dont just wander aimlessly, they are led by a pillar of Fire (GOD!) A good symbol here to remind us that God leads us! Pharaoh Changes his mind. He sets out in his chariots to kill the Israelites! The Pillar of Fire fights the Pharaoh and his chariots. God Parts the Red Sea for the Israelites to make their escape!

Coming to Mt. Sinai Wandering their way? The Israelites are led to Mt. Sinai. REMEMBER THE FIREY CLOUD! Along the way, the people begin to doubt. They are hungry in the desert. The dont have much water. Its a tough Journey! How often do we doubt!?! Israelites get some help! God gives the Israelites special things in the wilderness. They are hungry God gives them Quail and Manna What is Manna? Manna is special bread, sweet as honey, a

supernatural kind of bread. God is able to change poison water to pure water. Miracle: an event happening in nature, which is caused by something outside of nature! At the Mountain Finally Arrive at the Mountain Moses Receives the 10 Commandments Moses goes up to the Mountain to receive Gods Law. The 10 commandments are important because they are written by the very hand of God.

watch?v=CoFSpoAbXLc Hes there for 40 days! What else happened for 40 days and nights? The Ten Commandments You shall not have other gods besides me You shall not take the name of the Lord, your God, in vain Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day Honor your father and mother You shall not kill You shall not commit adultery The 10 Commandments tell us how to Live with God (1-3) and others (4-10)

You shall not steal You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor You shall not covet your neighbors wife Covenant at Mt. Sinai It was only when the Israelites made an agreement with God at Mt. Sinai that they become a people who would be saved THE SINAI COVENANT There were two parts to the agreement with God: God would liberate the Israelites and lead them to the Promised land: and would continue to be with them in a special way.

The Israelites would have to learn and keep the Law of God. SIGN IS THE SABBATH! They Keep a Day Holy as a Sign that they are Following the Law! The People of Israel have a decision to make. They can go back to captivity, and choose to go their own way without God, or they can stick with God. Theres only one condition: they have to keep Gods laws! A Holy God only resides with a holy people! The People Sin The Golden Calf While Moses is receiving the 10 Commandments, and the new covenant, Some of

the people turn away and worship their own god. The didnt trust God, or Moses! What is an Idol? Something that takes the place of God! The people promised that they would wait for the Lord, and worship the Lord, but they failed. Now, they have to wait 40 years to enter the Promised Land! Penance and Purification.
