Exodus 6 – The Parting of the Sea
January 27, 2014
The Hebrews leave Egypt and the Lord is with them with a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. After the Hebrews leave Egypt, the Egyptians reflect on the fact that they have lost millions of people from the land, and pursue the Hebrews. They reach a sea, which is translated as the Red Sea in Greek but may have originally been the sea of reeds in Hebrew, and possibly connected to a phrase meaning the sea at the end.
God parts the sea for the Hebrews to show His power, but closes the waters and drowns the Egyptians to save His people.
