The year was somewhere around 1400 B.C. A large number of Jews and Egyptians had just left Egypt in an extraordinary departure that was preceded by a mind-numbing display of God’s miraculous power.
The fearful multitude passed through the Red Sea on dry ground, the haughty Egyptian army and cavalry were destroyed as the returning waters inundated them (Exodus 1-14), and now at the Holy Mountain, Moses was experiencing the formidable task of setting up the laws, customs, holy days, and administration for the emerging nation of Israel. (The number of people leaving Egypt has been guessed to be as low as 20,000 and as high as 2 million.)
Seven Jewish Feasts (festivals or holy days) instituted by Moses at Mount Sinai were to be part of the Israeli culture. The Feast of Trumpets is known as Rosh Hashanah, or Yom Terua (day of sounding the ram’s horn), and is the fifth of the seven festivals. Rosh Hashanah means Head of the year, and is commonly referred to as the Jewish New Year (Leviticus 23:23-25).
