SERMONS #25 – The Silence of the Lambs (9/28/22)

29:56 – The death squads of the gods fan out across Egypt, finally convincing Pharaoh to release the Israelite slaves, who have stocked up on borrowed goods that they have no intention of returning. (Is that any way to treat thy neighbors?) The ensuing blood bath is enough to make Dave in Kentucky consider pollo-pescatarianism. How many children of Israel set out on the Exodus? Did they leave from the city of Rameses, or from Avaris? And what’s so special about unleavened bread?
