1581?!

In verses 21-42, we learn about many of the details of the first Passover.

Not only does the angel of death kill Egyptian firstborn males, but the Israelites plunder their former masters by asking for (and receiving!) large quantities of money.

Moses points out that the people escape captivity exactly 430 years after arriving in Egypt.

2011-430=1581

That would be equivalent to escaping a terrible situation that had started way back in 1581.

The scale of time involved is almost unimaginable.
