Approach: As Moses leads the nation of Israel out of Egypt, they are blocked by the Red Sea and are being pursued by Pharaoh and his army. Facing death for the first time as a nation, what does the nation learn about faith?

Hermeneutic objective: Helping the student develop astute observation skills.

Theological objective: While the events leading up to the Exodus were miraculous demonstrations of God's existence, the threat of death by Pharaoh and his army is a personal experience contributing to the nation of Israel's development of an objective definition of faith.
