Scope and Sequence

Walk the streets of ancient Thebes, past the pyramids and into the desert, stroll along the Nile and imagine what it was like in the days of Joseph and Moses. Sample the fruits the ancient Egyptians ate, learn about life in the desert and how the creator God provided a way of survival in the harshest of climates. Follow Joseph as he rises to a place that God has meant for good, and rejoice with him as he is reunited with his family. Feel the oppression of the children of Israel as they slave under their Egyptian rulers and join with them as they celebrate the Passover together and are delivered from bondage.
