The people that Lived in Ancient Israel only lived for 100 years before they suffered a severe drought. After all of their plants have died they all moved to Egypt to survive, but they suffered even more in Egypt. To prevent rebellion the Egyptian Pharoah had all baby boys born Israelites to be thrown in the Nile River. One day his daughter found one of those babies and named him Moses.
Moses grew up in Egypt tending the sheep outside of Egypt. According to the Hebrew Bible, one day Moses saw a bush burning and apparently, he heard a voice. That voice supposedly told Mses to lead the Israelites out of Egypt to freedom.
According to the Hebrew Bible, God sent 10 plagues to convince Egypt's pharaoh to let the Israelites go. One of the plagues was a drought, in which many people had no water and no crops.
During the tenth plague, all first-borns were killed. To let God know that their children should not be harmed, the Israelites marked their doorway with lambs blood. The last plagued caused the pharaoh to let the Israelites leave.
Please, God, our children should not be harmed.
While the Israelites were heading east out of Egypt, the pharaoh sent an army after the Israelites. In the Hebrew Bible, it is said that God parted the Red Sea to let his people past. It is also said that when the Egyptians came the sea flowed back and killed the Egyptians. The Israelites' great escape from Egypt is known as Exodus.
After the escape from Egypt, the Israelites headed back to Israel. On the way back Moses went to the top of Mount Sinai where he received laws from God. Those laws were known as the Torah. They became the first part of the Hebrew Bible.
