"In the Passover" - Exodus 11:1-12:42 (Exodus: God is Here)

In Exodus 6:1, God promises Moses, "Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh" - No more waiting, no more guessing, and no more mystery. And that is exactly what He does. After a season of talking about deliverance, God executes judgment on Egypt and the hard heart of Pharaoh through the 10 plagues. The first nine produce short-term effects, but eventually, through the death of the firstborn sons of all the land, the people of Israel are ordered to leave. The Jews are given explicit instructions regarding the blood of a lamb and they are forced to choose whether they will take God at His word. We will focus on God's judgment in His rescue plan that demands a faith response to Him through the blood of the Lamb.
