Transcript of Exodus.12-Passover

Exodus 12: The Story of Passover Setting Context Characteristics of an Epic Characters ~Moses: The epic hero of Exodus. He warns Pharaoh of (most of) the plagues, and delivers the Israelites out of Egypt. Moses is also considered a prophet.
~Pharaoh: The God/King of Egypt. He imprisons the Israelites and won't let them go.
~Aaron: Moses' brother, who helps him deliver God's messages.
~The conflict, from Pharaoh's perspective, is that the firstborns in all of Egypt are killed. This is an external and internal conflict because many
people have died and Pharaoh must
decide whether or not to let the
Israelites go. This makes the Pharaoh
and the Egyptians very upset and
there is a great cry throughout
Egypt (Ex 12:30). ~God tells the Israelites to sacrifice a lamb and spread its blood on the post and lintels (Ex. 12:3-7).
~God says he will pass over said houses, but will kill the firstborns of all other houses, and tells them to eat unleavened bread for 7 days (Ex. 12:13-15).
~God kills the firstborns of the Egyptians (Ex. 12:29).
~Pharaoh calls for Moses and Aaron in the night and tells them to leave immediately with their flocks and asks them to bless them (Ex. 12:31-32).
~Before leaving, the Israelites are given silver and gold by the Egyptians (Ex. 12:35).
~Israelites journey to Succoth with 600,000 men and make more unleavened loaves (Ex. 12:37). ~The story is set in Egypt, with the Israelites imprisoned in Goshen.
~Passover occurs after the other nine plagues.
~The setting impacts the narrative because it is where the Israelites have been imprisoned and it is where Passover happens. (Ex 12:12,40) Two characteristics of an Epic present in this chapter are the presence of supernatural forces and a hero of epic proportions. An example of supernatural forces would be Moses talking to God and the death of the firstborns of Egyptians. A example of an epic
hero would be Moses. Moses is an
epic hero because he talks to God,
is brave enough to confront Phar-
aoh, and is the leader of the Israelites.
These are the elements of an epic in
chapter 12. Modern Day Middle East (Near Israel) Hebrew Values Chapter twelve provides examples of Hebrew values because it institutes the celebration and remembrance of Passover. Passover is a very important Hebrew tradition because it celebrates the story of the Israelites leaving captivity in Egypt. The Passover story also provides the rules for the Passover meal and how to slaughter the lamb. Ex 12:5-11, 15, 43-49.
