jiobb, Jiavuijr accepted une atvuie
call to lead the Israelites out of Egypt,
leaves Midian. Meeting his brother,
Aaron, by the sacred mountain, he
perform? the 'three miracles to .con
firm his authority, namely: " the rod
changing into a. serpent, the hand
turned leprous and then healthy, and
the bloody water. The two 'brothers
Journeyed into the Hebrew colony and,
at a public gathering, revealed their
wonders to persuade the' people. In
this, they were successful. tThe Israel
ites heard the news gladly and turned
to v a renewed worship of Jehovah.
- 'While leading the people, . Moses took
them into his confidence in the hope
of securing full and loyal support .
'Various appeals to Pharaoh then
- followed. At first, the plea of the
two Israelites were rejected and the
' taskmasters were instructed to make
the burdens Heavier upon the workers.
The Hebrews, forecasting their fickle
ness through, the ages,; turned upon
' Moses with recriminations because his
' efforts had only brought them harder
-"tasks. '::y-i"'k::-"';i;fr ?Ltj U:Z: 'i
' Again; the two brothers appeared
before' Pharaoh, and with their
' . miracles, sought to induce him to al
low the departure of the Israelites
i from -Goshen. , Aaron's rod became a
serpent but the court magician dupli-
cated the feat in some jugglery and
Pharaoh was not , convinced, even
; though ;Aarons serpen consumed
those of Hie magicians.: In the hard
ness of heart, Pharaoh Inquired, "Who
' is the Lord?"-. The answer came in
. ten plagues, ' each driving home an
answer to. this question and finally
' resulted in the exodus of the He-
'' brews. , J . . . . -
' ' The ten plagues, 'which afflicted the
Egyptians, were: First- the waters
of the sacred Nile were turned to
' blood for seven days. Second, innum
erable frogs came at the command of
Moses, interfering with ordinary liv
ing. Third, insects (gnats, lice or
some such pest) visited the laind, pro
ducing great annoyance. Fourth, flies
in . vast numbers. Fifthimu'rrain, an
" infectious disease? faiarto cattle nfl
domestic animals. : Sixth, boils, f ester
inir and . burning man and ' beast
. Seventh, hail, ' thunder and lightning,
- unusual natural occurrences. Eighth
swarms of - locusts, devouring the
country's green plants. ; Ninth, dark
ness .sweeping over and . consuming
.the country lor three days. r Ana
tenth, the death , of the fjrst-born
- throughout Emrt. man and animal.
The Israelites were given particular
instructions to hiw they should
'; avoid the terrif ic toll pf defctii in the
last plajrue. So was instituted the
; ancient feast of the Passover, com-
'. memorative, in later years, of how the
God of Israel delivered them from
the Egyptians. ' So important was
' the event that it was to be the first
' day of the year thereafter,,, It stands
today as one of the greatest religious
events of the orthodox Jew, having;
i come downline centuries - and being
;one of thtef oldest, religious obser
vances of man, ; Centuries later, the
' Christians found in :this ancient .rite
' the prophecy of the sacrifice of Christ
for the salvation of man.- The human
souL in bondage of sin 1 slavery
i "more permanent than that of Egypt
was to be rescued. The Lord's Supper,
I a communion of the Christian Church,
(was instituted .by. the Savior during
. the Jewish season of the Passover..
When the tenth 'plague, came upon
Pharaoh and his people ai a thunder
i bolt, leaving - a dead child in every
homei li.araob, called, ia terror for
" Moses a.J' Aaron, bade, them and all
their people Jeave Egypt . at ores,
'even eohceduljr tlifcir lo?y'! mission,
"Go, serve tSie Lord, es ye have said."
Thus the Israelites began their Jonr-
ney a long period, occupied bv the ;
trainirg of an undisciplined mob into
1 a socinl and political unit and by the
evei a r con'onsness

Did you think a tout in invisible? Did yon in
suspect taat it was a thsoiogical concept that only
ministers could understand?
Well, look into, this boy's eyes I Do yon see bappi
ness . . . the certainty that life is full of beauty and
truths? Do you see hope . . . the assurance that
. every tomorrow will be better than every today?
Do you see courage . . ; the fortitude that will look
through defeat to victory? Do you see faith . . . the
confidence that Oody bears, and knows, and cares,
and' helps?' ;.'.-. ...',..', '
You'tf lookini into a sou You're seeing, the
spark of Himself which God has put into every one
of us. And you're eeeinv h still unblemished by the
cares and disappointments of life.
You can see a soul through your own cfiikfe eyes.
But unless you give that soul a chance to now up
with the body and mind that possesses it . , . soon
you'll no longer see it in your child's eyes ... and

The Church, through careful religious education,
develops that spiritual inner-being which we call the
Mend. Your child deserves the advantage of the
Church's Instruction. And, in church worship, you "'
- will rediscover the .beauty and strength of your own
: SOUL' - " . '
