When Moses and Aaron ask Pharaoh to let God’s people go, Pharaoh increases the oppression against the Israelites, and has them flogged when they fail to meet their quotas. The exodus drama provides us with a pattern of our Christian spiritual journey, with Pharaoh a type or representation of Satan. Here we gain insights into the character and tactics of Satan. We also explore the significance of Aaron’s rod, turned to a serpent, that swallows up the rod/serpents of the Egyptian sorcerers; and the meaning of the enigmatic reference by Paul in 2 Timothy 3:8 to "Jannes and Jambres (who) opposed Moses."
