This is our commentary on the portion Vayera - "I appeared." In this portion, the outstretched arm of the LORD begins to move upon the land of Egypt. The first seven of ten plagues are unleashed upon Pharaoh and his people, primarily, to show that the God of the Hebrews is God.! Hope you enjoy. Approximately 1:45
This is Bill's commentary on the portion Vayera - "I appeared." As this portion begins, God responds to Moses's complaints about the plight of the Hebrews with a simple statement: "I am the LORD (YHVH). Inherent in that statement is the authority by which God will redeem His people so that, in the end, both Pharaoh and Israel will KNOW "that I am the LORD." In follow up to this statement, God begins to pour out the plagues upon Egypt while, simultaneously, shielding Goshen. Some of the highlights are:
- Why the Patriarchs knew the LORD as El Shaddai.
- The Four Stages of Redemption.
- The Zeroah of the LORD
- Much more. Approximately 1:45
