It had been hundreds of years since the Hebrews first arrived in Egypt. After generations of flourishing, the nation of Israel quickly found themselves as slaves under the heavy hand of Pharaoh. The King of Egypt feared the great nation of Israel and that fear led to an attempted genocide through the murder of innocent babies. The Lord had promised Israel that He would make them into a great nation, but now set in the most trying circumstances they were left to cry out to God and hold fervently to the last strand of faith they had left. Their prayers were answered. God proved himself to the Hebrews and the rest of the world through the unimaginable redemption of His people from the Egyptians. In our own time we face fear, racism, rumors of war, and ideologies that set themselves against the truths found in the Bible. With the oppression of our heavily mediated society, it is not difficult to feel disconnected from the God we read about in Exodus. We invite you to join us in this series as we look at the incredible power shown to Israel and seek to encounter the living God in our own disenchanted age.
