Passover! That’s a funny word. Is it a bridge? Jet planes flying over us? Someone who was not chosen in the NFL draft? What is it? Well, believe-it-or-not, it is one of the most important events in the history of mankind. A whirl-wind trip through time is necessary to check this out, so hang on and let’s go.To understand what you are about to read, please remember that all mankind is innately religious. This is true from the hard-core atheist to the ultra-conservative because the Creator made us that way.In the 1600s BC, Jacob’s family went to Egypt, which was then under the rule of the Hyksos (a Semitic-type people). This would enable the Egyptian second-in-command, Joseph, to take care of them. Jump ahead several hundred years. The ethnic African-Egyptian pharaoh (the “king who knew not Joseph”) defeated the invaders, regained control of his own land, and had neither respect nor compassion for Joseph’s kin-folk who were ethnically related to the recently defeated Hyksos. He was also worried that the Hebrew people might rise up against him, so he ordered them into forced labor. This was the first oppression or enslavement of the Hebrew people. Jump ahead a few more years. The first deliverer, Moses, came onto the scene.
