Children’s Bible Program – Level 2: Lesson 38 “Between the Army and the Sea”

Featured Passage: Exodus 13-15

God brought the children of Israel out of slavery with many miracles. They were finally headed for the land God promised them. God led the people across the wilderness to edge of the Red Sea where they stopped to camp. In the meantime, Pharaoh changed his mind again! He was angry that he had let his slaves go, so he sent his army after the Israelites. Israel was about to be trapped between Pharaoh’s army and the Red Sea. How would they escape? God had a plan to save them, but how?
