The Tenth Plague and the beginning of the exodus are listed in chapters 11-12 of Exodus. This plague did it, for the firstborn of every animal and Egyptian died. Pharoah’s household was not exempt. Pharoah was the ultimate god of the Egyptian people.
What caught my attention in these two chapters is the similarity between the sacrificial lamb of the Old Testament and the lamb of the New Testament, Jesus.
The lamb was brought into the household four days before it was sacrificed. Jesus entered Jerusalem four days before his crucifixion.
The lamb had no defects. Jesus had no sin.
The lamb was a male. Jesus was a male.
The lamb had to die so its blood would save the firstborn from death. Jesus had to die, and his blood was shed to save people from eternal death.
The lamb’s bones were not broken. Jesus’ bones were not broken.
