The Plagues & the Rest of the Bible
Using a concordance of the Bible or the Logos Software system, look up passages in the Psalms, the Prophets (Isaiah through Malachi), the History Books (Joshua through Esther) and the New Testament that mention the 10 plagues against Egypt. (You might include the Passover that commemorated the 10th plague.) Find at least two references from each category.
List at least two of the passages that you found from each category (biblical references only).
Choose one passage from each category: Psalms, Prophets, History Books, and the New Testament. Explain how each passage you have chosen makes use of the plague events from the period of the exodus. How did the author of each passage that you have chosen blend the reference about the plagues into their writing?
Assess the overall use of the plagues in these passages. Are they all used in a similar way? Do they all reflect the original situation in Egypt? How do you think the people of Israel thought about the plagues when various speakers (psalmist, prophet, preacher) mentioned them? How should the Christian today think about (and apply) the plagues of the exodus?
