Heb 11:22 “By faith Joseph, when he was dying, made mention of the exodus of the sons of Israel, and gave orders concerning his bones.”
Lk 9:28-31 “About eight days after these sayings, He took along Peter, John, and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. And while He was praying, the appearance of His face became different, and His clothing became white and gleaming. And behold, two men were talking with Him; and they were Moses and Elijah, who, appearing in glory, were speaking of His departure, which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem.”
As we are quickly approaching the end of this year, I felt led- and it seemed appropos- to talk about leaving the old, and entering the new. The bibical account of Israel’s departure from Egypt is a rather vivid depiction of this, but I feel as though because we are familiar with the story, because we know how it ends, we mentally push fast forward so we can get to the good part- God’s deliverance, the ending of a painful season, and the hopeful

There arose a Prarohn...
This single verse is 1 of the top 10 verses according to Orthodox Jewish tradition. Why? Because it encapsulates the human condition in 1 sentence:
There arose a generation who didn’t know about 9/11; who didn’t know about the pandemic; there arose a genration who didn’t know what it took for us to get where we are today- who forgot what it was like before they got the job…the wife…the kids- who forgot what it was like when they were bound and begging for someone to rescue them. Build a memorial…not a temple- we’re not going back- this is for anyone else who passes this way, so they know if god did it for them, he can do it for me! And if perchance we do go backwards towards Egypt, them we have a reminder that should hopefully see it and remember why we left & what god did to free us. We may need to remind each other. Tell somebody, “Let me know if I start looking egyptian again.”
Lessons from Egypt. we learned how to build under harsh conditions.
Ex 1:8-14 “Now a new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. And he said to his people, “Behold, the people of the sons of Israel are too many and too mighty for us. Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, otherwise they will multiply, and in the event of war, they will also join those who hate us, and fight against us and depart from the land.” So they appointed taskmasters over them to oppress them with hard labor. And they built for Pharaoh storage cities, Pithom and Raamses. But the more they oppressed them, the more they multiplied and the more they spread out, so that they dreaded the sons of Israel. The Egyptians used violence to compel the sons of Israel to labor; and they made their lives bitter with hard labor in mortar and bricks and at all kinds of labor in the field, all their labors which they violently had them perform as slaves.”
