Crossing the Red Sea

Reading: Exodus 13:17-14:31

Key Verse: Exodus 14:13 -14
Moses answered the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.’

In the Batman trilogy, Bruce Wayne/Batman does not want anybody to know he is batman so creates a false exterior of a playboy billionaire. But this false image is off putting to his true love Rachel Dawes. He says to Rachel “everything you see here is not me, inside I’m different, inside I’m more” but she replies “It’s not who you are underneath, but what you do that defines you.” In a similar way in the book of Exodus God is revealing who he is by his actions.
Egypt has been levelled by the 10 plagues and following the last plague of death, where the angel of death passed over the children of Israel, they have been set free. Now God is leading them out.
