Jesus a Migrant from Egypt

Matthew 2:13-15 NRSV

Now after they had left, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.” (Matthew 2:13)

God always has a Master plan. God delivered Israel from Egypt in times past, but now used Egypt to provide refuge to the Savior of the world.
