The crossing of the Sea of Reeds on dry land celebrated by the children of Israel in the Song of the Sea, was not just a passage from slavery to freedom, it was a passage from the past to an ever approaching future. It was a revelation shared by all the children of Israel, a premonition and prophecy and proof of the future resurrection of the dead.
