Reading between the Lines/Lions

Decided to do something simple that didn’t take a lot of thought or editing. This is just observations from my daily Bible reading plan. You know you read a passage, and there is so much background context either missing or assumed. It raises questions or makes you mind fill in possibilities.  This is that sort of thing.

  • Exodus 1:9 “Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we:” — Here we have an example of the danger of non-assimilation. Any population should become a part of your system after a generation or two.
  • Exodus 1:18 — “And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah:” — Okay, Israel is so huge in number and only has two midwives to deliver babies?
  • Exodus 1:14 — “Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee:”  — I almost get the idea that Moses had regular communication back to Egypt. There is something here that feels almost like a clandestine communication system going on.
