Many things in history can be connected to one another The Starving Time of the colonists and the Hebrews Exodus are two examples that relate so clearly Their relation can be expressed through religious beliefs of the two or through the roles of the groups involved The two specifically relate to each other through religious means While the Hebrews were escaping the Egyptian army they were cornered next to the Red Sea At this point God split the sea and allowed the Hebrew people to pass through When the Egyptians reached the same point the sea again converged upon itself The flight of the Hebrews from the Egyptian control was known as the Exodus This miraculous moment for the Hebrews relates to the rush of good fortune received by the colonists during what could have been their last days The way they encountered the ship that was equipped with enough supplies to aid them showed their good fortune in a way that provided special religious contentment among the peopleSuch colonists as John Smith expressed their belief that these welcomed events were the arm of the Lord of Hosts who would have his people pass the Red Sea and Wilderness and then to possess the Land of Canaan This quote shows that Smith thought of the people of Jamestown as a sort of Hebrew during the Exodus It was probably common among the colonists to relate these two because it seemed in both instances that when the group could no longer go on God came to their aid Another important connection between the two is the role of each of the parties involved Some historians relate John Smith to Moses in these two stories Both were leaders who although not successful from the beginning brought their people to a stable place in the end The roles of the colonists and the Indians can be transferred depending on the point of view Some could relate the colonists
