Thoughts: Predictably, Pharaoh regretted letting the Israelites leave Egypt. He stormed at his servants, “Why did we (!) let Israel go from serving us?.”
So Pharaoh and his army, with 600 chariots, pursued the Israelites and caught up with them on the banks of the Red sea.
“Weren’t there enough graves in Egypt?” The Israelites raged at Moses. “Why have you brought us out into the wilderness to die?”
Moses assured them, “The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”
And with the miraculous parting of the waters, all the Israelites passed safely between the walls of the parted Red Sea. When the Egyptians pursued the Israelites, the waters roared over them. Not a single Egyptian survived.
I remember reading that, during the filming of The Ten Commandments, Cecil DeMille used thousands of boxes of red jello to create the walls of water. God didn’t need any red jello.
Discussion Do we accept the parting of the Red Sea as a miracle, or do we search for scientific exploration?
