The story of the Exodus is preceded by ten plagues that just about destroy the country of Egypt. At first glance the plagues seem to be too harsh and vindictive. But there is much more to this story! The God of Israel was exposing the impotency not only of Pharoah but of the gods he supposedly represented and that the people thought were ruling Egypt bringing them protection and prosperity. He was showing the people of Egypt who is the one true God! That may be why many of them left along with the Israelites.
