Why did Tziporah circumcise her son? So HaShem wouldn't kill Moshe
Moshe is Elohim to Aaron. What does this mean? HaShem will command Moshe what to do and say and then Moshe will command Aaron what to do and say (as if he was his "god")
What was Pharoah's first response at Moshe's request to let the Israelites leave Egypt? Refuses to obey bc he has never heard of HaShem and doesn't believe in Him, therefore is not afraid of Him

How were the Shotrim rewarded for disobeying Pharoah and accepting his beatings? Were made Cohenim on Jewish court
How do we know that Pharoah was a human (not a god)? Moshe + Aaron went to see Pharoah relieve himself in river bc gods cannot relieve themselves (therefore Pharoah cannot be a god)
Why does Pharoah relieve himself in the Nile River every morning? Bc he doesn't want people to know that he relieves himself (that he isn't truly a god)
Was Pharoah guilty for his hardened heart? No bc he did not obey HaShem so his heart was already hardened + he wouldn't have allowed the Israelites to leave Egypt anyways
What is the purpose of the Israelites' freedom? So they can be a holy nation + kingdom of priests + recieve the Brit and obey HaShem
When did the Israelites reach Mt. Sinai? 3 months after leaving Egypt
