Passover and the Exodus

“God makes preparation to bring his people out of their Egyptian bondage by a devastating demonstration of power in which the firstborn of all living things throughout Egypt will meet with death — all, that is, except the Israelites, whom God will spare through a plan involving the sacrifice of lambs and the use of their blood to identify those who are God’s people.

The significance of the event is nothing less than the implementation of God’s promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  It is the deliverance of God’s people from their bondage in a heathen land, and a prelude to the establishment of the nation of Israel through which all nations will one day be blessed.”

Read Exodus 12 and Exodus 13:1-16
