    attack on the gods of Egypt. There are a few varying views on the way that they are connected, but whichever way one decides upon, the connections are obvious. The plagues and Exodus in general can teach a great deal about God’s sovereignty and about being spiritual underdogs in a pluralistic world. While researching the ten plagues and Egyptian theology, one will often find that many believe each plague to be an attack on different gods. Evidence for this idea is found in Exodus 12:12. To give some context to this verse, at this point in scripture, nine of the ten plagues have already occurred and…

The last one is the slaying of the firstborns’ of the Egyptians. At first glance, this seems like an absolutely atrocious act and it is.

    In both of the books, God and Gilgamesh both use violence to show their power. Similarly, God uses violence against the Pharaoh with the ten plagues to show his power and to show the Pharaoh is a false God, while Gilgamesh uses violence to defeat and kill Humbaba to show his power. The difference between these two would be that God used his violence to prove a point and show that he was the real God and the Pharaoh was powerless.

    When looking at the nameless Pharaoh of the story, it could mean that not having a name for him ties the story more emotionally to a lot of the people (Hendel, 2001). Exodus is a huge focal point that ties emotionally to all the slaves that were captured and one day hoped to be let free (Hendel, 2001). It could be that the name was purposefully not written down or it could be that this detail has become part of collective memory, lost through years of translation (Hendel, 2001). The deadly…
