dc.description.abstractThe Hebrew people were subjected to severe oppression; their sons were killed at birth, and their people were forced to hard labor by the Egyptians. The Hebrews cried and pled to God for deliverance (Ex. 1:13-14,2: 1 1,23-25). God heed to their cry and he sent Moses to lead the Hebrews out of Egypt to the land of Canaan, which God had promised to Abraham and his descendants. The Hebrews' experiences of the Exodus were used by the Sudanese, who have suffered as the result of the oppression by their government, to console, to inspire, and to give them hope to wait for God's deliverance. As the Hebrew people were challenged by the shortage of food and water when they were in the desert, the Sudanese refugees and internally displaced people were challenged with these basic needs. The Hebrews and the Sudanese peoples were forced to the oppression by the governing authorities, but they had hope in God. These two groups of people believed in God who is always on the side of the oppressed; they hoped God would intervene to bring peace, justice, and reconciliation to meet their needs.en_US
