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).

Israelites Slaves in Egypt Prophecy
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 obey Pharaoh.

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
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
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
