ABRAHAM Genesis 15:12-14 God promised Abraham that he would be the father of a nation, the lineage of Messiah. He is told they will be delivered after 400 years in a foreign land.
JOSEPH Genesis 37, 39-47 The 12 sons of Jacob are the 12 tribes of Israel. The story of Joseph tells how God placed them in Egypt.
MOSES Exodus 1-17 tells the story of God’s great deliverance from Egypt when the Passover was instituted. See also 1 Corinthians 10:1-4 & John 6:30-35, 47-58
In scripture Egypt is a “type” of the world. It symbolizes the oppression, slavery, & bondage that are brought about by sin. The Exodus foreshadows the deliverance we receive by our Lamb of God, Jesus. John 1:29 & 36 Leaven symbolizes sin as well. 1 Corinthians 5:6-8
GOSPELS --no coincidence His death, burial, & resurrection took place at Passover
