This is a 28 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Religion – Heroes of the Old Testament - Moses & the 10 Plagues of Egypt. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
The plagues of Egypt were sent by God to convince Pharaoh to free the Israelite slaves from the bondage and oppression they had endured in Egypt for over 400 years.
Moses & Aaron were selected by God to deliver the message to Pharaoh. Moses was 80 years old, and his brother Aaron 83, when they entered the palace of Pharaoh. Fearlessly, they went past the heavy guard of men and wild animals that surrounded his inner chambers, and which permitted no unbidden visitor to enter. Nobody had ever been able to see the King of Egypt in person, and speak to him, except his astrologers and counselors. Astonished and frightened by their sudden appearance, Pharaoh asked the 2 brothers what they wanted.
The message sounded like a command: "Thus has the Lord God of Israel, `Let My people go, that they may feast to Me in the desert.' " Pharaoh responded by saying, “Who is the Lord that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the Lord, neither will I let Israel go.” (Exodus 5:2). He further accused Moses &Aaron of a conspiracy against the government, and of interference with the work of the Hebrew slaves
On the same day, Pharaoh ordered his supervisors to increase the demands on the children of Israel and to make their burden still heavier. If they had time to think of liberty and worship of God and ideas, quite unbecoming of slaves, then they must be getting too much leisure, Pharaoh thought. The slaves now had not only to produce the same amount of labor, but in addition, they had to procure their own raw materials for the bricks. The Hebrews were physically unable to cope with such an impossible task, and they suffered even more than before.
In desperation, the children of Israel bitterly reproached Moses & Aaron for making their fate even worse, instead of helping them. Deeply hurt and disappointed, Moses prayed to God. God consoled him and assured him that his mission eventually would be successful, but not before Pharaoh and all of Egypt would be smitten by terrible plagues, to be adequately punished for oppressing the children of Israel.
