traditions, adventures, trials, tragedies, celebrations and much more that
the Bible shares with all who look within these pages of TRUTH.
As we begin, first let's partake of a
Daily Bread Stick. The word “Exodus” means a mass departure. So let’s get
started and see who is leaving and from where.
After Joseph died, and all his
brothers and all of that generation, the children of Israel grew in numbers
and became a very strong, very mighty people and the land of Egypt was
filled with these Israelites (Offspring of Israel, once known as Jacob).

EGYPT EXPLANATION AND WERE THE ISRAELITES SLAVES IN EGYPT SUMMARY
There was, of course a new king over
Egypt by that time, also called Pharaoh, who didn’t know Joseph as the other
Pharaoh that liked him did. He said to the Egyptians, the people of the
children of Israel are bigger and stronger than we are. We must do
something or if a war breaks out, they might join our enemies and fight
against us, so let’s get them out of here.
Taskmasters were ordered to make the
Israelites do hard work and build for Pharaoh elaborate cities that they
named Pithom and Raamses. But the harder they made them work, the more the
Israelites grew. The Egyptians were worried about this, so they made the
Israelites work even harder still, so that their lives were miserable. It
was hard work, with mortar and brick and all kinds of work in the fields.
The Pharaoh came up with an idea on
how to reduce the Israelite population. He told the Hebrew midwives, that
whenever they deliver a child for a Hebrew woman, if it’s a son, to kill
him, but to let the daughters live. He was hoping to put an end to the
Israelites within one generation, but the midwives feared God and didn’t
When he found out that the sons were
still alive, the Pharaoh demanded to know why the midwives had done this.
They answered that the Hebrew women are different than the Egyptian women
and they deliver their babies before the midwives get there.
God was pleased with what the midwives
did and He blessed them with large families. The Israelites multiplied and
became stronger than ever.

Pharaoh wanted his way, one way or
another, so he commanded all of his people, the Egyptians, that every
son that was born to the Israelites was to be thrown in the river and every
daughter was to remain alive.
Imagine the turmoil that these people
were feeling. In Joseph’s generation, the Pharaoh was just the opposite,
giving the best that Egypt had to offer to the children of Israel. Even
during the famine, they were given more than the native Egyptians, and now
they are slaves, in bondage because this Pharaoh is jealous and afraid that
they’ll one day take over Egypt.
Our next story is about the birth of Moses. Moses was known as “the
deliverer,” since he was the one who led God’s people, the children of
Israel, out of the bondage of Egypt. You won’t want to miss it, so
join us again, for more Daily Bread.
