Passover is the story of how the Children of Israel came to leave thousands of years of slavery in Egypt. First, Moses asked the Egyptian Pharaoh to set the Israelites free, but the Pharaoh refused. Moses warned the Pharaoh that God would unleash a number of plagues on the people of Egypt until the Pharaoh agreed to set the Isrealite slaves free. These plagues were blood, frogs, gnats, flies, blight of the livestock, boils, hail, locusts, darkness, and the death of the firstborn. After each plague, Moses again requested the release of the Israelites, but Pharaoh refused, until the plague of the death of the firstborn. The Israelites were promised by God that if they smeared lamb's blood on their doors, their homes would be passed over by the angel of death.
