If I'd planned this in advance, I would have a ten day countdown to Passover and would cover each of the plagues, but I'm not that organized. Plus it's a busy time of year for a blogger with general religious themes, with us now entering Holy Week for Christianity, and of course there are the developments in the Catholic Church with the new Pope Francis. Plus I've just run across some other nice MOCs I wanted to feature. Anyway, let's just feature the first plague, illustrated here by E.B..
The LORD said to Moses, “Tell Aaron, ‘Take your staff and stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt—over the streams and canals, over the ponds and all the reservoirs—and they will turn to blood.’ Blood will be everywhere in Egypt, even in vessels of wood and stone.” Moses and Aaron did just as the LORD had commanded. He raised his staff in the presence of Pharaoh and his officials and struck the water of the Nile, and all the water was changed into blood. - Exodus 7:19-20
