28 April 2019 – John Reid starts a new series on the old testament book of Exodus. The nation of Israel is enslaved by Egypt and the Pharaoh who fears the growing Hebrew population embarks on a program of genocide, declaring war on God’s people. The Hebrew midwives are the heroes of this passage and they are remembered by name as they demonstrate that God is the one to fear, not pharaoh. By comparison, Moses appears to be the failure, abusing his power and not trusting in God. Even in the darkest of times, God is for us.
