Crossing the Red Sea

Today's Reading: Exodus 14-15 and Matthew 17

We all want big Blockbuster miracles but nobody wants the circumstances that require such a miracle. Can you imagine being an Israelite on the run, with Egyptian soldiers nipping at your heals?

I've read many authors who try to explain this Red Sea miracle in alternate ways (like the river could have been especially low this time of year). Sigh. But then the miracle would be the fact that so many Egyptians got caught and drowned in such dry conditions. Just saying.

This song by Petra is super-dated but meh, still a good one if you're into rock from a couple decades ago.

The image below is from The Prince of Egypt movie.
