“What Distinction?”

March 23, 2018

 

Exodus 11: 7:  “But against any of the sons of Israel a dog shall not even bark, whether against man or beast, that you may understand how the Lord makes a distinction between Egypt and Israel.”  OK, if here the Lord says He makes a distinction between Israel and Egypt, then what does St. Peter mean when he says that God does not show partiality? (Acts 10: 34)  He means just what he says – but you have to finish his sentence.  “In every nation, the man who fears Him is welcome to Him (v. 35).  It was a mixed multitude that came out of Egypt; not all were Israelites.  Others believed, and were welcome to make the trip.  If even an Egyptian had put the Passover blood on His door, his first-born would have spared.  The distinction is not race or nationality, but belief – who believes and acts?
