Hope - The Story of Moses and the Exodus

(Exodus 12-14)

Hope is the earnest anticipation that comes with believing something good. Hope is a confident expectation that naturally stems from faith. Hope is a peaceful assurance that something that hasn’t happened yet but will indeed happen.

  • At first Pharaoh let the Israelite people go, why did he change his mind? (He lost the services of the Israelite people who were used like slaves, and his heart was hardened.)
  • What did the Israelites do when they saw the Egyptians? (Complained and blamed Moses, said they would rather go back and serve the Egyptians than die in the desert.)
  • Who did Moses say would fight for the Israelites? (God.)
  • What would the Israelites need to do? (Nothing, just to be still.)
  • What happened to the water when Moses reached out over the water? (the waters parted to reveal dry land)
  • How did God keep the Egyptians away from the Israelites before they crossed the Red Sea? (He placed a pillar of fire between the two of them.)
  • What happened when Moses stretched out his hand over the sea the second time? (The waters returned and Pharaoh's entire army drowned.)
  • How did the attitudes of the Israelite people change at the end of this story? (Instead of being afraid, they trusted God.)
  • How do we see God's protection in this story? (By performing a miracle to stop the enemy from doing harm.)
  • At what points in the story did Moses and the people show hope?
