WHAT I LEARNED WHEN I READ THE BIBLE
God established His covenant with Abraham in Genesis 15. It is also in this chapter that we see the prophecy that the Jews would be enslaved in Egypt for 400 years.
“As the sun was setting, Abram fell into a deep sleep, and a thick and dreadful darkness came over him. Then the Lord said to him, ‘Know for certain that for four hundred years your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own and that they will be enslaved and mistreated there. But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves, and afterward they will come out with great possessions.’” Genesis 15: 12-14
