"By faith he [Moses] left Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king, because he remained steadfast as seeing Him who is invisible. By faith he kept the Passover and the application of the blood, that the destroyer does not touch their firstborn "- Hebrews 11:27-28

When the tenth plague of \ Egypt, the Hebrews had slaughter a lamb and apply the blood on the lintel and the amounts of their home. They should then observe the Seder to commemorate this salvation. "This day will be a memorial for you: you shall keep it a feast to YHWH. "(Exodus 12:14). The Passover was thus established on the evening before the Exodus. The ten plagues that befell Egypt expressed a judgment against all the gods of the country. The death of the firstborn of Pharaoh himself worshiped as a son of Ra, showed the impotence of the latter. And Moses could now lead Israel through the wilderness to the promised land.
