A baby in a reed basket
  Exodus 1:1~2:10
1. About 350 years had passed since Jacob's family moved to Egypt and they Increased greatly in numbers. After many kings had passed, the people of Israel who lived comfortably when Joseph was alive became slaves. The new king was afraid of the people of Israel because they were growing in numbers. He ordered that although girls born to the people of Israel may live, but boys born must be killed.
