Passover: A feast of the Jews in a call to remember/serve as a memorial of the time when God, smiting the 1st born of the Egyptians, passed over the dwelling/residence of the Hebrews (Exodus 12).
Biblical History on The Book of Exodus:
The second Book of the Law or Pentateuch. It may be divided into two prinicipal parts: (1) Historical and (2) Legislative.
A little history of the Exodus commences with the close of the 10 Plagues. At midnight, the first-born were slain. (Exodus 12:29). They at once set forth from Ramses (verse 37, 39) and during the night (verse 42) going into the morning, on the 15th day of the first month (Number 33:3).
They made three journeys and encamped by the Red Sea. ( The prophecy of Isaiah has been fulfilled 11:15; 14:5).
This is where Pharaoh overtook them, and the great miracle occurred by which they were saved, while the purser and his army was destroyed.

CHRIST'S HUMAN FEELINGS & RELATIONSHIPS
I want to share something that happened with me I broke/chipped off my back tooth while I was eating and I am very horrified of needles.
So on last week I had told some friends what had happened and I needed prayer for the work that was to be done.
We really did not know how the dental appointment would go on yesterday (4/15/03) but I did wish to share this, we did not know whether the tooth would/could be pulled or whether it would have to be cut out.
But before leaving home I grabbed a prayer book and took with me I will not worry you long but I just had to share this.
In the beginning of the book it starts off with a scripture from John 15:5
When I read further in the book this is what I read next: This is the place where He will share His heart with you and you will know His will.
The last thing I read before the dentist came in was from: II Samuel 22:7 In my distress I called upon the Lord, Yes, I cried to my God; And from His temple He heard my voice, And my cry for help (came) into His ears.
Now the dentist tells me Angela open your mouth, I did and she used the instrument to touch all my teeth to see if when she touched them did any more hurt and they did not.
Then she looked at me and said If we take this tooth out you are really going to miss it, for you need it then she said I am looking at talking with you about a root canal and crown but first I need to put you on antibotics and I will also write you a prescription for pain.
And In a way tears began to roll down my face...for I thought it was not as bad as I had expected...thank God for answered prayer.
