Hello! I am Jacob, a Hebrew. Can me and my people stay here?
God said i should go back to Egypt and save the Hebrew people...
3,000 years ago, in 1700 BCE, Abraham, a young Hebrew, a Shepard, and the Patriarch of the Hebrews, living in Ur, Mesopotamia, made a covenant with god to move from Ur to Canaan. God said that it will become all Hebrew's "promise land", and in return, they must believe in him and him only as their god.
Please, let go of my people, the Hebrew's!
No! Get out!
The food supplies started to drop, and the Hebrew's had a famine. Jacob, Abraham's grand-son, had the idea to move to Egypt. They went on foot to meet with them. The Egyptians and Pharaoh welcomed the Hebrew people, as if they were family. They did this because they had a surplus of food thanks to the Nile river. They said the Hebrew's could continue to believe in Monotheism, keep on living their life, share their land, and much more.
Thank you, God, for these 10 commandments. We will remember them for generations to come.
A Hebrew was born. His name was Moses, and he was raised in the Egyptian palace. During this time, all Hebrew's were slaves, thanks to the Pharaoh thinking that since the population was growing, the Hebrew's will attack Egypt. But, Moses was found by the princess, and raised. Many years later, when he was old and a Shepard, God spoke to him as a burning bush, and told him to save the Hebrew people and free them.
I, Joshua, Shall lead us all! We can beat the Jericho people together! For us, and Moses!
Moses went to the Pharaoh, and asked him to let the Hebrew's go. The Pharaoh said no, that made God curse the Egyptians with 10 different plagues. However, on the 10th and final plague, Moses told the Hebrew Slaves to smear lamb's blood on their doorway, because an angel of death will come and kill the eldest son of the Egyptians, But when he saw the lambs blood, the angel of death knew it was a Hebrew. In the morning, the Pharaoh found his eldest son dead. He told Moses to get the Hebrew's and leave. And the exodus ended.
Moses and the Hebrew's left Egypt and went back to Canaan. However, they knew another tribe had already taken over Canaan. So, they stayed in the desert for 40 years, training to get their land back. During these years, Moses climbed a mountain called Mount Sinai and got the 10 commandments
Unfortunately, after many years of hard work, Moses died. However, His deputy, Joshua, took his place. What was once called Canaan and home to the Hebrews, soon turned into Jericho. Joshua and the Hebrews conquered high-walled city. The tribes later settled in the lands to the north.
