Exodus 11 Study Guide & Breakdown …


Death of the Firstborn Announced – (Exodus 11:1-10)


11 And the Lord said to Moses, “I will bring one more plague on Pharaoh and on Egypt. Afterward he will let you go from here. When he lets you go, he will surely drive you out of here altogether. 2 Speak now in the hearing of the people, and let every man ask from his neighbor and every woman from her neighbor, articles of silver and articles of gold.” 3 And the Lord gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover, the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants and in the sight of the people.

4 Then Moses said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘About midnight I will go out into the midst of Egypt; 5 and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne, even to the firstborn of the female servant who is behind the hand mill, and all the firstborn of the animals. 6 Then there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as was not like it before, nor shall be like it again. 7 But against none of the children of Israel shall a dog [a]move its tongue, against man or beast, that you may know that the Lord does make a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.’ 8 And all these your servants shall come down to me and bow down to me, saying, ‘Get out, and all the people who follow you!’ After that I will go out.” Then he went out from Pharaoh in great anger.

9 But the Lord said to Moses, “Pharaoh will not heed you, so that My wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.” 10 So Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh; and the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he did not let the children of Israel go out of his land.


NOTES Exodus 11 – (vv. 3 & 10) …


11:3: The Lord gave Israel grace in the sight of the Egyptians, for as the Only-Begotten of the Father, He is full of grace and truth – (John 1:14) … And as Moses became great in their sight, so in similarly, the Incarnate Son became great in their sight when He established His Church throughout that land …


John 1:14: And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth …


Additional Notes- THE WORD BECAME FLESH: clarifies the manner in which the Son and Word of God came to His people (vv. 9-11)- this pointing directly to the Incarnation: The Word became fully human without ceasing to be fully God: He assumed complete human nature: body, soul, will, emotion, and even mortality -everything that pertains to humanity except sin: Being both God and Man in One Person- Christ pours out divinity into all human nature, those not in Christ can't be healed!!! DWELT AMONG US: In the OT, God's presence dwelt (tabernacled) in the ark of the covenant and later in the Temple: Here, the eternal Word comes to dwell in an

d among humanity itself: HIS GLORY: refers both to His divine power shown by His signs and wonders (JOHN 2:11; JOHN 11:4, 40), and to His humble service to mankind, shown most perfectly on the cross (John 12:23-32; John 13:31): In both ways, Christ reveals that He is the One sent from the Father!!! ONLY BEGOTTEN OF THE FATHER: The Son has no beginning, but has the Father as His source from eternity: He is called only begotten because there is no other born from the Father: (The Holy Spirit exists eternally from the Father through another mystery called "Procession"; see John 15:26): FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH: This phrase is for both the Word and His Glory: Grace is Christ's uncreated energy given to us through His love and mercy: truth also includes His faithfulness which is Great, His promises and covenants and to the reality of His Words and Gifts!!!


11:10: Pharaoh again through his own free will and choice hardened his heart yet again – (see also my notes on Exodus 4:21) …


PSALM 70 (71) STUDY GUIDE & BREAKDOWN


PSALM 70 (71) – Teaches the Church about deliverance from captivity – (taken captive, v. 1) to the devil and his angels – (my enemies, v. 10; see also Ephesians 6:12) … For the enemies ensnared mankind in the fear of death and the lifetime of bondage it endangered – (see also Hebrews 2:15) … But from birth to death, we are delivered by the Lord Jesus Christ from this fear – (from birth, v. 6; to old age and to my last breath, v. 18) … For we are delivered and set free in His righteousness – (v. 2), on which we meditate … all day long (v. 24) …


Hebrews 2:15: and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage …


-There is a relationship between sin and death: each one leads to the other … Sin causes death, and the FEAR OF DEATH leads one to sin and thus to bondage – (Romans 5:12) … Christ sets us free from this bondage of sin and death …


Ephesians 6:12: For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities. Against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places …


- Stand for good and shun evil!!!


CLOSING …


I struggle with perception which is part of my struggle with confidence … My perception of the world and certain people I either encounter or is already in my life, I struggle with what others might be thinking about me … I’m fixing to share a reading from Orthodox Study Bible – (Psalm 32:3-5): Because I kept silent, my bones grew old from my groaning all the day long; for the day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; I became miserable when the thorn pierced me (Pause) I made known my sin, and I did not hide my transgression; I said, “I will confess my transgression to the Lord, “ and You forgave the ungodliness of my sin … (Pause)


Here are my thoughts, I remain silent when I’m perceiving the world and others around me … Frustrations grow daily, but I know to never grow weary, and I know the only approval that truly matters is the one that comes from my Redeemer, my Savior, who is our salvation Jesus Christ our Lord!!! My mission is to continue spreading the Word of God, teaching transgressors His ways so sinners can turn back to Him!!!


JOHN 4:24
God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and truth …
A Reading from Proverbs 24:3-5 - My thoughts are in the video content for this lesson have a blessed day - SHALOM!!!
