   As passover approaches at sundown today, I shall discuss what the Passover story symbolizes. The Passover story symbolizes how Hashem, the God of Israel, the only living God out there, freed the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. The Israelites were held as helpless slaves in Egypt, one of the ancient world's most powerful civilizations. The seat of Pharaoh was one of the most powerful seats in the ancient world. Many people viewed the Pharaoh as God. However, with the miracles God displayed for the Children of Israel  to free them  from slavery, the lesson was that Pharaoh was not God. No human Government, reguardless of how powerful it is or thinks it is, is above or equal to God's power. God brought Pharaoh and Egypt down to its knees, thusly showing that reguardless of how powerful Pharaoh or Egypt are [or were to be more accurate], they're power is nothing compared to God's power. Today, I'll discuss the story of God, through Moses, freeing the Israelites and its significance.
