This week we read about the tenth and final plague in Egypt: death of the firstborn, a plague that seems horribly cruel. Many skeptics have used this story to disavow the Bible—and the God of the Bible. But we find the mercy of God (and his judgment) at work in the plagues. He wanted the people of Egypt to know He was the true God and mightier than all their false gods. He also was faithful to His word and promised Abraham that his descendants would become a great nation and be a blessing to the entire world. God’s plan would offer redemption to the entire pagan world, but His people had to be freed to get on with it.
