Tovia Singer – Passover Perspective

What was the lamb representative of? How could an Egyptians become part of the “mixed multitude”? Also, does Jesus fit into the Passover story?

Then you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says Yehovah: “Israel is My son, My firstborn. So I say to you, let My son go that he may serve Me. But if you refuse to let him go, indeed I will kill your son, your firstborn. – Exodus 4:22-23

    Very interesting program and lots of good comments and information. However, on the negative side it was disturbing to hear the rabbi say that Ex. 12:40 doesn’t mean what it says. When confronted on the point he just rambled about God running out of time and having to cut the time in half “or else Israel would have become unredeemable.” Really??? Where do we read anything like that in the Torah? Then, adding insult to injury, he claimed that the early Christians understood the true chronology (offering Gal. 3:17 as proof), but unfortunately Moses didn’t know what he was talking about when he wrote 430 years. Preposterous!
    Anyone interested in a cogent explanation of the truth that is expressed in Ex. 12:40 can find a thorough analysis in Eugene H. Merrill’s superb book “Kingdom of Priests: A History of Old Testament Israel.” The book is very readable and is an excellent resource. Here’s a link:

    Paul, let’s hear your theory! 🙂

  4. Paul says

    Who needs a theory when it’s already written! lol

    Ignorance is bliss, right Paul?

    Jono, there’s no problem reconciling Genesis 15:16 with Exodus 12:40. This isn’t something that can be discussed in snippets on a website. For a thorough discussion of this subject I again refer you to Kingdom of Priests: A History of Old Testament Israel, by Eugene Merrill. He is a remarkable historian who writes in a clear and readable style, and first and foremost believes in the reliability and historical accuracy of the Scriptures. The book is an excellent resource for information on any period of OT history. You won’t be disappointed.

    Sorry, Jono, I misread a portion of your post. There is no problem reconciling Genesis 15:16 with Exodus 6:16-20 or with Exodus 12:40.

  8. Mosheh says

    There is nothing that needs to be reconciled, in my opinion. God’s word does not come back void (Isai 55:11, Isai 46:10) Approaching this like any other prophesy, we have to conclude that Gen 15:16 was not fulfilled in Exodus. We can’t make it fit, if it really doesn’t.
