Time to finish Genesis and move into Egypt. The first thirteen chapters of the Exodus deal with the problems of the Israelites in Egypt, the calling of Moses, and the plagues against Egypt. After that, chapters 13-20 deal with the journey of the Israelites through the wilderness to Sinai. And the final chapters of this week's reading deal with God's law and instructions on the tabernacle and priests.
I added in a few pictures of our trip to Egypt in 2009. The first was a stop at the supposed well of Marah detailed in Exodus 15:22-26, followed by a picture of Elim, detailed in Exodus 15:27. Next is a picture of the hill where Moses raised his hands so the Israelites could defeat the Amalekites in Exodus 17:8-16. Finally there are a couple of pictures taken from the top of Mount Sinai at sunrise. I hope they help you envision what's being talked about in the pages of the Word as you read this week.
Here is the schedule:
17, Sunday: Genesis 41-44
18, Monday: Genesis 45-48
19, Tuesday: Genesis 49 - Exodus 2
20, Wednesday: Exodus 3-6
21, Thursday: Exodus 7-10
22, Friday: Exodus11-14
23, Saturday: Exodus15-18
May God add His richest blessings to the reading, the hearing, the understanding and most importantly the living out of His holy word. Amen.
