What is Passover?
God spoke to Moses to go to the Pharaoh and say: “The Lord the God of the Hebrews, sent me to you saying, ‘Let my people go, that they may serve me’…”
When Pharaoh refused, God sent through Moses 9 plagues upon Egypt. The Lord said to Moses:
Yet one plague more, shall I bring upon Pharaoh and Egypt… about midnight I will go forth… and all of the first born in the land shall die.
