Journey to the 10 — Israel thirsts, discovers bitterness within

We are continuing our “Journey to the 10 (commandments)” as our ancestors of old went the first time. We see God’s “high hand” redeem our ancestors from the Egyptians once and for all. Then they continue for three more days until they reached Marah on the 24th of Aviv.

Passage: Exodus 13-15

Thought Questions

What does Ex. 13:9 mean when it says, “And it shall serve as a sign to you on your hand, and as a reminder on your forehead, that the law of the LORD may be in your mouth; for with a powerful hand the LORD brought you out of Egypt”?

How does the Passover seder and our practice of eating unleavened bread for seven days “a sign” on our hands and “a reminder to our foreheads”? How does it help keep “the law of the LORD in your mouth”?

Is the “hardening” of Pharaoh’s heart the same thing as Joshua’s strengthened heart?

How did God “tamper” with the Egyptian’s chariots?

How did Moses know about this part of the story when none of the Egyptians survived that day?

Where did they go after they completed their Red Sea crossing?

Why are the first born connected to a donkey?

How do you redeem a donkey?

How were the waters of Marah a test for the Israelites?

What does it mean to “murmur” (Strongs 3885 luwn)?

What is the symbolism of God putting the tree into the water to sweeten it?

How is that symbolic of the word of God and the Tree of Life?

What sickness did God “lay upon the Egyptians”?

Does God lay sickness upon us?

How do we get rid of and overcome bitterness in our lives? (Col 3:18, James 3:10-12, Rev. 8:10-11, Rev. 10:9-11)

Why did God want the people to face bitterness before they went to Mt. Sinai?
