What is Exodus?

    of Egypt with the Israelites.

    away in a basket to avoid being killed by the new
    law stating that all male infants to be killed.
    He was found by the daughter of the pharaoh and
    was raised as her son.
  • Moses killed an Egyptian who was beating a
    Hebrew, and then he fled to Midian.
  • There he married Zipporah and had two children.
  • One day while taking care the flock of sheep, God
    appeared himself to Moses as a burning bush.
  • God gave Moses a mission to bring the Israelites
    out of Egypt into a land where they can be free.

The Exodus (in depth)
  • God tells Moses to return to Egypt to free the
    Israelites.
  • Moses returned to Egypt and tried to convince the
    Pharaoh to free the Hebrews, with the ten
    plagues.
  • After the ten plagues, the Pharaoh let the
    Hebrews leave because of the terrible destruction
    the plagues had caused.
  • The Hebrews, left but the Pharaohs army followed
    because the Pharaoh had changed his mind.
  • Moses split the Red Sea on the command of god,
    and walked across to freedom.
  • The army followed but the Red Sea collapsed and
    killed the all the soldiers. (God punished them)

5
The Exodus (continued)
  • Moses and the Israelites traveled to the desert
    of Sinai. And Moses climbed himself to receive
    the Ten Commandments.
  • When he came back down the Mountain with the
    commandments, the people had grown impatient and
    had started worshipping a golden calf.
  • Moses got mad at the heresy and destroyed the Ten
    Commandments. But God forgave the people and
    gave Moses another copy of the commandments.

6
The Ten Plagues
  • The Plague of blood was the first plague was
    send forth by God through Moses to go to the
  • The Plague of Frogs was the second plague that
    God brought forth through Moses. When the Moses
    told the Pharaoh to let the Israelites go, the
    Pharaoh refused then the frogs swarmed from the
    Nile and come up to the palace.
  • The Plague of Gnats was the third plague that was
    brought forth when the Pharaoh refused again to
    let the Israelites go. When God said to Moses to
    tell Aaron to stretch his hand with the staff and
    struck the ground. All of the dusts of the ground
    became Gnats that came upon men and livestock.
  • The Plague of Flies was brought forward to the
    Pharaohs palace and the houses of his officials
    and then throughout Egypt.
  • The Plague on Livestock that all livestock that
    belonged to the Egyptians will die but the
    livestock that belonged to the Israelites lived.

The Ten Plagues (continued)
  • The Plague of Boils was created by God through
    Moses and Aaron. God told them to take a handful
    of soot then toss it in the air in the presence
    of the Pharaoh. The soot become a dust cloud over
    the land of Egypt, soon after every Egyptian and
    animals suffering from festering boils that broke
    out.
  • The Plague on the First born The Plague of Boils
    was created by God through Moses and Aaron. God
    told them to take a handful of soot from the
    furnace and then toss it in the air in the
    presence of the Pharaoh. The soot become a dust
    cloud over the land of Egypt, soon after every
    Egyptian and animals suffering from festering
    boils that broke out.
  • The Plague of Locusts was send forth due the
    Pharaoh constant refusals to let the Israelites
    go. The Locust would swarm the land of Egypt to
    devour what is left in the land and will fill in
    every houses of the Egyptians. Israelites had
    light where they lived.
  • The Plague of Darkness fell on Egypt for three
    nights. No one couldnt leave their houses for 3
    days. For the was that all first born Egyptians
    will perish, for example the son of the Pharaoh
    will die.

  • Thou shall not make an idol of any form in Heaven
    or Earth
  • Thou shall not use the name of the Lord your God
    in vain
  • Thou shall keep the Sabbath day holy
  • Honour your mother and father so that you may
    live long in the land the lord your is give you
  • Thou shall not kill
  • Thou shall not commit adultery
  • Thou shall not steal

Impact on Egypt
  • According to the historians and biblical analyst
    of Egypt, they believed the Old Testament offers
    no evidence of Moses ever exists in Egypt.
  • In addition they believed that Moses is portrayed
    as a parable, and the book of exodus summarized
    symbolizations.
  • Is it possible that such events or people could
    have existed from what we know of ancient Egypt?

10
Impact on Egypt
  • The first miracle performed by Moses is turning a
    staff in to a snake. With gods help Moses
    threaten the pharaoh to free the Israelites by
    sending the Egyptians 10 plagues. They are the
    plague of blood, plague of frogs, Plague of
    Gnats, plague of flies plague of livestock,
    plague of boils, plague of hail, plague of locust
    and the plague of Darkness.
  • Later, followed by Passover, which became an
    official holiday. Passover begins on the 15th day
    of the Hebrew month, which is on April 19 and
    lasts for seven or eight days. The contents in
    Exodus had not been proven though the story seems
    to make senses in religious perspective.
  • Egyptians celebrate Christmas, but is different
    from the western culture. Instead of December
    25th, they celerbrate Christmas on Janauray 7th.
    Their verison of christianlity is totally
    diffrenet from the westerns cultures. They are
    known as the Coptic Christianity, the eastern
    christians. Therefore there are not enough
    evidence to link Moses and the book of Exodus to
    Egypt.

11
Influences on world history
  • The story of Exodus had influenced the world
    history with Moses leadership and the miracles
    performed. One of his trademarks is splitting
    the red sea to create a passage for the
    Israelites to escape from the Egyptians.
  • And the most significant event that happened in
    Exodus is the birth of the 2 stone tables, with
    the 10 commandments written by god. These
    commandments were very important to the Catholics
    and the Christians, because they are the rules
    and regulations that civilized the society back
    in the 16th century.
  • Some of the commandments shaped todays law.
    Because the commandments are ethical to all
    culture, the laws based on the commandments such
    as you shall not murder or you shall not steal,
    can be apply to the humanity globally.
  • Moses is an important figure for the believers.
    Through different religions, resulted in
    different character. To the Jewish, he is a
    story, to the Muslim, he is the prophet, to the
    Mormon, he is a book. Whatever he is, he
    portrayed an important figure, which shaped a
    little or make a difference in each reliogn
    throughout history.

Discussion questions
  • Which of the ten commandments do you think is the
    most important?
  • What are some examples of controversial problems
    happening in our time regarding to the difference
    between the western Christians and the eastern
    Christians. What are the chances of internal
    conflicts?
  • Is the book of Exodus reliable? Is it possible
    for scientist to discovery new findings for the
    Red Sea, in comparison to the evidence of Noahs
    Ark that was found in Turkey?
