Bible Study Notes on Exodus 18 – 20190121

Exodus 18:1  "...Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses’ father-in-law..." Ran into this in chapters 2 and 3.  The question was the actual familial relationship between Moses and Jethro.  The words used could mean father-in-law or brother-in-law.  And the ancient cultures sometimes referred to grandchildren as children, so the actual generations are sometimes blurred.  Here we …

Exodus 17:1  "...set out on their journey from the Wilderness of Sin..."

Bible Study Notes on Exodus 14:19-31 – 20190103

Exodus 14:19  "...Angel of God..."
