This week we finish up with our reading in Exodus. Chapters 13-20 deal with the journey of the Israelites out of Egypt through the wilderness to Sinai. The pictures below are from the trip Debbie and I took to Egypt in 2009 - the first two show the pyramids and Sphinx. These date back to approximately 2500-3000 BC which means they existed before Moses (1350BC) and Jesus were born.
Along the journey - The first picture below was taken when we stopped 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.The two pieces of stone you see on the top left part of the mountain are the remains of a church that was built over the supposed site where Moses stood.
The final chapters of this week's reading in Exodus deal with God's law and instructions on the tabernacle and priests. Finally I've included 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.
