#7 in the series Exodus: Part 1 • I Am
Dave Tate

Passages: Exodus 7:14 – 8:19

“The river is blood. If one drinks of it, one rejects it as human and thirsts for water.” – Admonitions of Ipu-Wer, ancient Egyptian manuscript

But when Pharaoh saw that there was a respite, he hardened his heart and would not listen to them, as the Lord had said. – Exodus 8:15

“The plagues systematically undermine Egypt’s pluralist claims. They are a lecture against religious pluralism, the belief that all religions are valid and personal autonomy, the belief that I have the right to live how I like. It is a curriculum with ten unforgettable lessons. And the message is clear: there is only one God.” – Tim Chester
