Key Verse: Exodus 20:2
The book opens with the story of the jealousy/fear of the Egyptians and Pharoah allowing baby boys to be slaughtered. But as we know, there is no plan that man can concoct that can keep God's will from being accomplished. The midwives feared God and would not allow the baby boys to be killed. A miraculous escape plan was hatched to protect the infant son of two members of the tribe of Levi. She hid her baby boy for as long as she could. The Scriptures tell the rest of the story better than I could.
Only God could direct these extraordinary events to happen.
