On previous episodes we began the book of Exodus at a time when Joseph and his deeds toward Egypt have been forgotten. Israel is numerous, but Pharaoh hates them and enslaves them. God sends Moses, a Hebrew man who was raised in Pharaoh’s house, to return to Egypt and tell Pharaoh tell let God’s people go, so that they may worship Him in the wilderness. When Pharaoh refuses, God sends plagues of blood, frogs, gnats, and flies, but the king of Egypt will not back down. As always, the translation I’m using is the Christian Standard Bible, so if you’d like to dig deeper into anything you’ve heard today I’d encourage you to check out the CSB study Bible and get into the notes.

Thanks for listening, and remember: Happy is the one whose delight is in the Lord’s instruction and he meditates on it day and night.
