Gilbert House Fellowship #277: Exodus 10-13

THE PASSOVER is a milestone in world history. It’s a defining moment in the creation of Israel, and thus, a key event in the natural and spiritual history of the world.

We discuss the connection between the Passover and another event of primary importance, the crucifixion of Jesus. We also discuss the cross-pollination of the pantheons of the Amorites (Canaanites) and Egyptians, and why it’s so difficult to draw one-to-one connections between the plagues of Egypt and the Egyptian pantheon. Some of the gods linked to specific plagues (such as Serapis, who’s connected by some to the plague of locusts) weren’t even worshiped in Egypt until centuries after the Exodus.

Here is a link to the paper by Dr. Douglas Petrovich that Derek mentioned, Amenhotep II and the Historicity of the Exodus-Pharaoh.

    The word feast in chapter 10 is khag, which is the same word used in Arabic for the Haj. Feast, festival, pilgrimage.

    Nisan in the Spring was the first month. Aviv. They would have had the full moon to travel by.

    Sorry to hear about your lovely ferns. Our cat is having difficulty getting down of our roof so my daughter has fixed a plank from the conservatory roof into the big apple tree. The cat sounds like an Alsatian coming over the roof and the neighbours hear her when she travels up and down. She gets on the roof from the neighbours’ new fence and is unable to run along the top so it’s two legs on the fence and two on the plank below.

    The locust god of Egypt was their crop god.

    The lamb was an idolatrous symbol of Egyptian sanctity. They considered killing of lambs a desecration of their religion.

    If a video I saw was correct, the “death fog” entered homes above ground level. Since first born children slept on elevated beds, they were in line with the fog; thus other siblings sleeping on the ground escaped death.

    Just curious, once all the leven was removed and they leave Egypt, where did they get leven from again while they were in the wilderness?
    No leaven in their homes so how did leaven appear again? Have always been puzzled by this. Especially when they were in the wilderness and they could not have had any trace of leaven when they left.

    There are many YouTube videos on cultivating your own yeast. It is done in a fermentation process. Basically you mix water and flour, stir and let sit, repeating the process over 3 to 5 days. Yeast is very common on grains and in the environment. It grows easily and doesn’t take much to permeate any dough.
    A perfect analogy to sin in the world

    Sharon and Derek, regarding the bones.: The bones themselves were not special or believed to have carried a bit of the soul in them (as you correctly pointed out), but what Joseph (and Jacob) were doing in requesting that their bones be buried in The Promised Land was actually making a statement of faith in God and in His promise to give their descendants that land. Thus, the idea of burying the bones was not intended to be a practice that we MUST follow today, but was rather a display of Joseph’s and Jacob’s faith in their (our) God.

    Sharon and Derek, regarding the bones.: The bones themselves were not special or believed to have carried a bit of the soul in them (as you correctly pointed out), but because Joseph (and Jacob) requested that their bones be taken and buried in The Promised Land. This was actually a declaration of their faith in God and in His promise to give their descendants their own land. Thus, the idea of burying the bones was not intended to be a practice that we MUST follow today, or becuase they were afraid of genetic tinkering, but was rather a display of Joseph’s and Jacob’s faith in their (our) God and His promises to them.

      I forgot to mention that the Bible does confirm this in Hebrews 11 where we read the following:
      “By faith Joseph, at the end of his life, mentioned the exodus of the sons of Israel and gave instructions about his burial.” – Hebrews 11:22 NET
