"Sons" would be too narrow. Jehovah's hit list includes "all the firstborn of beasts," too.

He was showing the Israelites that He is God. The only God. All the plagues were actually aimed toward a different Egyptian god, showing that He is the only God, and the false gods of the Egyptians were just that-false!

He could have made that point after the first plague. Hardening Pharaoh's heart so that the Egyptians would have to suffer through 10 plagues was kind of a dick move.

If you do some research, each of the 10 plagues were based on different Egyptian deities. ie: the god of crops, water, etc. The reason God did these was to prove that He was God over all the Egyptian gods

If he's meant to be omnipotent couldn't he have just used his omnipotence to make whoever he was trying to prove himself to know he existed? Surely he wouldn't need to do all that stuff. He could just remove all memory of the Egyptian gods from everyone's memories, thereby getting rid of all knowledge of them.

There's quite a lot in the Pentateuch to suggest that Moses actually worshipped a volcano...

Good quiz. Haven't studied these since I was in middle school, possibly earlier. Reminds me of the film Prince of Egypt, a film which I loved despite its inaccuracy of Christian mythology. I went to private school for the first seven grades, by the way. I am no longer a Christian (I am an agnostic deist), but I still find this interesting. As I do the beliefs and stories of many other religions. A truly fascinating topic.

i found the prince of egypt to be fairly accurate, compared to others. i heard a talk by a rabbi and he estimated that it was about 80% accurate. except the whole pharao/moses brother thing. but with the plagues and stuff...

I learned it as plague on the cattle. Got it after trying livestock, so I'm grateful that's in there. But I think a lot of people call it "cattle".

Yes, it was the death of the eldest son. But that was probably because female children were held in such low esteem that killing them would have meant nothing to the Egyptians.

This is simply not an accurate portrayal of Ancient Egyptian gender roles. Even though they did fluctuate over 5000 years of history, in general daughters were absolutely valued and were able to inherit, make money, and choose their life partners (outside of the nobility where likely nobody had a choice)

You should see the spring migration of locusts in Egypt. It is so scary, they just cover everything. They look like a huge black cloud and they keep hitting everything as they are flying. I witnessed that once or twice. But they were just migrating nothing to worry about.

I am currently reading through Exodus as part of my quest to read the Bible chronologically in a year. Otherwise I would not have remembered, say, gnats and flies. Not all of the plagues are as memorable as the death of the first born sons, the locusts and boils, or turning the Nile to blood.

"You shall say to him, ‘The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, sent me to you, saying, “Let My people go, that they may serve Me in the wilderness. But behold, you have not listened until now.” Thus says the Lord, “By this you shall know that I am the Lord: behold, I will strike the water that is in the Nile with the staff that is in my hand, and it will be turned to blood. The fish that are in the Nile will die, and the Nile will become foul, and the Egyptians will find difficulty in drinking water from the Nile.”’”

Old Testament god makes some pretty heavy handed points.

Boils or the killing of first born sons could easily be replaced with something akin to making all meat taste like sauceless Arby's or having everyone sound like Piers Morgan.

Pharoah would have packed the Israelites' bags himself and upgraded them to business class after 30 minutes of that.

Luckily, I read the Bible (and it is easy to name them if you read Exodus). God did try to teach the Egyptians a lesson but the pharaoh didn't learn his lesson (even though he let the Israelites go) which caused to his death after Moses un- platted the sea wen he got to the other side using his staff - which can turn into a snake thanks to the Lord.
