Enduring lessons from the children of Israel

From the July 2017 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Many are at least somewhat familiar with the biblical account, beginning in Exodus, of Moses leading the children of Israel out of bondage in Egypt toward the Promised Land—Canaan, promised by God to Abraham, who would be made “a father of many nations” (see Genesis 17:1–8 ). All along the way God guided the children of Israel, protected them, fed them, and taught them about His nature and relation to them.
