2010 Feast of Passover & Easter
For more than 400 years, the Jewish people had lived in Egypt (Exodus 12:40). However, the time had come for God to fulfill His covenant with Abraham and bring them back to their homeland as He had promised (Genesis 46:3-4; 50:24). Therefore, God raised up one man to deliver His chosen people; this man's name was Moses. One day God spoke to Moses in a desert through a burning bush; this bush burned but was not consumed (Exodus 3:2). It was there that God revealed to Moses that He had seen the affliction of His people down in Egypt, had heard their cry for help, and had known their sorrows. Now, He was coming down to deliver them out of Egyptian bondage and bring them into the promised land (Exodus 3:7-8).
