Exodus 8:16-19 – Hindsight is 20/20.
1. Pharaoh’s idols were more than just statues; his idols were about what he worshiped. What modern idols do we worship?
2. How does it change your understanding of the plagues to know that they were not directed primarily at the people of Egypt but at their gods?
3. Why is the story of the exodus out of Egypt important for Christians to tell their children? How is our telling of the story different from Israel’s?
4. The magicians believed this plague was due to “the finger of God.” Read Psalm 105:23-38. How does this passage inform a fuller understanding of God’s handiwork?
