War with Amalek
The children of Israel had left Egypt and had almost arrived at their destination of Mt. Sinai. While camped at Rephidim, only a couple days from Mt. Sinai, they faced their first battle. Amalek attacked them at their camp. After this battle, God tells the children of Israel that they will have war with Amalek in every generation. What did God mean by this statement? Why did this battle occur at this place and time? What does war with Amalek signify?
