Exodus 1: When Pharaoh felt threatened

1. Introduction and Review. Luke 22:14-19, Exodus 12:24-28

· Why does a New Testament Christian need to understand the Book of Exodus?

· A book of prefigured truth -- doctrinally

· A book of key information -- historically

· A book of parallels – prophetically

2. Holocaust in Ancient Egypt

· Exodus 1:1-5 – Remind us who these people are and where did we first learn about them.

· What did we say was significant about the number 70 here? (Hint: refers to a Jewish body of leaders and a NT evangelistic party)

· Exodus 1:6-7 – Keep in mind, the events of Exodus are 400 years after patriarchs came to Egypt

· Exodus 1:8-14 – What is the problem here?

· What is Pharaoh’s solution to this problem? Does it seem to be working?

· Exodus 1:15-17 – What is happening here? What modern sin can this be compared to?

· Aren’t they disobeying the law of Pharaoh? Isn’t that wrong?

· How do we know that God approves the midwives’ disobedience of Pharaoh?

· Exodus 1:22 – compare to Revelation 12:1-5, 13, 17 and Matthew 2:16

· Can you give some historical or modern examples of how this has been true?

· A male leader will emerge from this group of “saved” male children who will save the Israelites, preach judgment to Pharaoh and prefigure Jesus Christ – Can you guess who this will be?
