Passover (Start) History
Passover (Hebrew: פסח) is a seven-day Jewish festival that celebrates the Israelites fleeing from Egypt about 3,300 years ago. Passover is called such because the Israelites marked their door frames with a sign. It is believed that because of this sign, God passed over their houses during the plague of the firstborn.
The Israelites were servants from the days of Jacob until Moses. They lived through famine in most of Mesopotamia, including Israel. The Israelites built store cities for grain in Egypt (possibly, the pyramids). After 210 years of servitude in Egypt, the Israelites had become servant-minded and did not believe that they could flee. They eventually fled via the Wilderness of Sinai, where they resided for forty years.
