Spread over the books of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, it tells of the events that befell the Israelites following the death of Joseph, their departure from Egypt, and their wanderings in the wilderness, including the revelations at Sinai, up to their arrival at the borders of Canaan.In addition, the Exodus has served as an inspiration and model for many non-Jewish groups, from early Protestant settlers fleeing persecution in Europe to African-Americans striving for freedom and civil rights.The arrival in professional sports of players such as Tim Tebow in the NFL, Jeremy Lin in the NBA and David Booth in the NHL make a nice change from the Adam ‘Pac-man’ Jones and Sean Avery types, the former convicted of various off-the-field conduct charges and the later with the infamous ‘sloppy seconds’ quote.
The consensus of modern archaeologists is that the Israelites were indigenous to Canaan and were never in Egypt, and if there is any historical basis to the exodus it can apply only to a small segment of the Israelites.
Yet there are indications that some historical basis underlies the story: the name of Moses is Egyptian, for example, and many scholars have found it improbable that a humiliating tradition of slavery would simply be invented.

And that’s when people believe in you and follow you”“A lot of times we have our plans and we think everything is going to be easy-going in life, the bible says: ‘In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome this world.’ That was a very encouraging verse for me.
We want to make it easier and we keep getting away from the real joy and knowing Christ and the joy he has for you.
Moses leads them out of Egypt and through the wilderness to Mount Sinai, where Yahweh reveals himself and offers them a Covenant: they are to keep his torah (i.e.
law, instruction), and in return he will be their god and give them the land of Canaan. Booth makes Kesler better, this is where the Tebow comparisons begin.While not going as far as painting bible verses on his face, Booth has been open about his Christian faith since his Florida Panther days (Tebow was raised in Florida and had a successful college career with the Florida Gators) and attributes religion as major contributor to his Hockey success.The 22nd of October, 2011 may become an important date when the Canucks look back and reflect at the end of the season.This was the date Mike Gillis traded David Booth to Vancouver from Florida along with Steven Reinprecht and a third round draft pick in exchange for forwards Mikael Samuelsson and Marco Sturm.The second theory, sometimes called the "Citizen-Temple Community", proposes that the Exodus story was composed to serve the needs of a post-exilic Jewish community organised around the Temple, which acted in effect as a bank for those who belonged to it.
