From these three readings, we see how God

would come. Lets see how Moses responded as God
prepared him to be the deliverer.

The Passover A Symbol of Gods GraceBible
Knowledge
33
As God sent plague after plague upon Egypt,
wicked Pharaoh remained stubborn. He would not
let the Israelites go. But God used Pharaohs
hard-heartedness to further his gracious plan
The LORD had said to Moses, Pharaoh will refuse
to listen to youso that my wonders may be
multiplied in Egypt (Exodus 119). Against this
backdrop of a beaten-down Egypt and a
hard-hearted Pharaoh, we find the Savior-God
graciously rescuing his people and proclaiming
the wonderful truth that he redeems his people
with blood.
34
What did God promise regarding the blood of the
Passover lamb?
Read Exodus 121-13.
What instructions about the Passover lamb did God
give to the Israelites through Moses and Aaron?
What was the significance of the blood on the
doorframes?
Who, therefore, died in the place of the
believers in Egypt?
35
Why did God command the Jews to celebrate the
Passover every year?
Read Exodus 1224-28.
Why did God want his people to obey these same
instructions every year as a lasting ordinance?
How did the people respond to Gods instructions?
36
Why did God command the Jews to celebrate the
Passover every year?
Read Exodus 1311-16.
What command for the future did the Lord give the
Israelites?
How were the Israelites to respond when asked by
future generations?
What figure of speech showed that God wanted his
people to remember his grace in their thoughts
and in their deeds?
37
The Exodus An Exercise in TrustBible Knowledge

As the Egyptians awoke that first Passover night
to find their firstborn _________________ dead,
they begged the Israelites to leave Egyptand
gave them silver, gold, and _________________ to

God guided them to the _________________ Sea with

44
After the Passover the hard-hearted Pharaoh
admitted defeat. Imagine the grief and sorrow of
the Egyptians as they lost their firstborn sons.
Imagine the joy and thankfulness of the
Israelites as they marched to freedom. But when
Pharaoh changed his mind and decided to pursue
the Israelites with his best soldiers and
swiftest chariots, the Israelites cowered in
fear.
45
In this setting we see the Israelites lack of
trust and, even more profound, Gods grace in
spite of his peoples doubts. This
