Exodus

Details, Please (Part 3)

To break Pharaoh’s will, God sends ten plagues on Egypt, ending with the death of every firstborn child – except those of the Israelites.  They put sacrificial blood on their doorposts, causing the Lord to “pass over” (12:13) their homes.  Pharaoh finally allows the Israelites to leave the country (the “Exodus”), and God parts the Red Sea for the people, who are being pursued by Egyptian soldiers.
