A humorous video walks you through the exodus of the Jews as if it happened today.
What if Moses had Facebook?
That's the question a Jewish group in Israel began formally asking in 2011. And by Monday - on the eve of Passover - more than 2.5 million people had clicked in to watch a YouTube video trying to answer that question, all with a jazzy version of the Passover classic, "Dayenu," set in the background.
When Aish.com first publicized the "Google Exodus - Passover Movie," just 50,000 people had seen the clever 2:17-minute clip.
Silicon Valley plays a prominent role - albeit silent one - in the humorous video, with Google, Facebook, Apple, Yahoo, Twitter and Craigslist all acting as the key forms of communication between God, Moses, Pharaoh and the other key Passover players. Of course, Moses emails Pharaoh from his gmail account to the leader's dot.gov account.
The clip begins with a search for "Basket Baby." Someone searches Yahoo for "Why is the bush burning but not being consumed?" Pharaoh's Palace is searched for on Google Maps. And Moses posts a status update on Facebook saying that "My staff just turned into a snake. Cool."
Jimmy Fallon's Thank You Notes While the video is still certainly funny, after three years, it's starting to show its age. There are no Red Sea photos posted Instagram. And if Ramses needed a girlfriend, Tinder wasn't around to have helped him find a nice Eygptian girl.
Maybe that's why this year, Aish.com - a Jerusalem-based Jewish content website - decided to be topical, and create a new Passover video based on the hit Disney film "Frozen."
This year's video is called "Let it Go: Passover Edition." As of Monday morning, it had nearly 80,000 views.
Oh Moses. I thought it was about Moose.
I made an Exodus away from FB .
Boris and Natasha always were in the “must get Moose and Squirrel” mindset.
I’d like an accurate number of how many people have lost their job from FaceBook postings. I know of one personally.
Wow! Good videos. The funny ones, sure. But the best one is called Choosing Freedom. It speaks to what is wrong in this country today, what is wrong with Mankind. Summary: we are waiting for someone to give us our Freedom.
Flash Mob at the pillar of fire at noon!!!
Case in point: manna.
What's wrong with "personna"?
That was really good.
Thanks for sharing.
Just received this in an e-mail from Jewish Voice Ministries
And the blood shall be a sign for you
and when I see the blood I will pass over you
without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness”
...for Messiah, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed.”
In Egypt, doorposts of Jewish homes were rubbed with blood from a sacrificial lamb ...and God passed over them, keeping them safe from the last and worst of the ten plagues.
Yeshua, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world was sacrificed for us. When we receive His sacrifice for us, God passes over our sin because it has been paid for by Yeshuas shed blood.
Wishing you a blessed Passover, remembering all that God has done for you and remembering Yeshua, the Lamb of God.
