In this sermon on the background to the Exodus story, we examine several events and questions, including the kind of circumcision God really desires, the difference between believing in God vs. trusting in God, what ancient brickmaking was like, how Pharaoh turned the Israelites against Moses, the purposes for the plagues on Egypt and the matter of collective guilt and collective punishment on nations.
