THE EXODUS PASSOVERS


    - The children of Israel observed the first Passover
      dressed in a manner appropriate for travel, "with a
      belt on your waist, your sandals on your feet, and
      your staff in your hand", Exodus 12:11.


    - At midnight that night the LORD killed the firstborn
      of Egypt and Pharaoh arose at night and called for
      Moses and Aaron (Exod 12:29-31).


    - In the morning, in response to the call of Pharaoh,
      Moses organized the children of Israel and led them to
      the city of Rameses.
      (The children lived nearby in Goshen, of the territory
      of Rameses, refer Gen 47:6 & 11.)


    - The children of Israel having arrived at the city of
      Rameses, presumably in the afternoon, then awaited
      word from Pharaoh.
      
      [ Since Moses had agreed with Pharaoh that it was not
        good for them to meet again (Exod 10:28-29), Moses
        and Aaron did not personally appear before Pharaoh
        in response to Pharaoh's call. ]


    - Pharaoh ordered the children of Israel to leave Egypt
      and serve their God as they had requested (Exod 12:31).


    - That night, before the city of Rameses, the children of
      Israel were glad.
      The second Passover commemorates this night!


    - In the morning the children of Israel departed Rameses
      and in the sight of the Egyptians they journeyed to
      Succoth (Num 33:3-4). On this day the Egyptians were
      burying their dead, having spent the prior day in
      mourning.


 [ NB: Those who consider the children of Israel departed for Succoth
       on the morning after the death of the Egyptian firstborn, do
       not portray the Israelites leaving the city of Rameses as a
       single group (as Scripture indicates). In error they teach that
       the Israelites swarmed from many different locations in Goshen
       and finally assembled as a single unit in Succoth. ]
