We all know whose side Yahweh was on...

There was a race of people that migrated to ancient Egypt because of that nation’s prosperity. These people were poor and the lower levels of society in Egypt were better than the places they left. In Egypt they were able to feed their children. In Egypt they had a place to work. In Egypt they had hope.

But because of their vast number, the Egyptians were afraid they would destroy their society. They believed they needed to control this population or their country would fall apart. Because of their fear they despised them, they killed their children, and they forced them into slavery.

We know this group of people as the Israelites; the children of Abraham.

And we all know whose side Yahweh was on...
