Va’era (“I Appeared”) opens as G-d promises to redeem the enslaved Israelites and bring them to the Promised Land. When Pharaoh repeatedly refuses to let the Israelites go, G-d sends a series of plagues: water turning to blood, frogs, lice, wild animals, death of livestock, boils, and hail.
In the Haftorah, Ezekiel tells of the coming fall of Egypt, which will humble it and reminds Israel who their help comes from.
In the Apostolics, Messiah is accused of being an agent of the adversary.
