Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) was pretty good tonight. The teaching leader was trying to get us to envision the size of the Exodus, when the Israelites were fleeing from Egypt. The group was 600,000 men. With wives and children they estimate the group at around 2 to 3 million people. Lessons in perspective:
2 million people walking 2 abreast is a line about 40 miles long
Imagine the amount of food each day to keep them going
Imagine the amount of water that's needed
Imagine the amount of waste that the last few people had to go around that were at the end of that 40 mile long line of people.
Here's someone willing to stand on their head to learn more about this. Anyone know who it is?
Have a great day!
