Ten colorful and unique plagues...was that really so necessary? Or was there a deeper theological significance behind why God sent all ten plagues?

In this week's video, Rabbi Fohrman explores the final plagues, and argues that God played off of Pharaoh's ego to show Pharaoh, the people of Egypt and the people of Israel that only God is all-powerful. Through this explanation, we uncover the significance of why God needed to send all ten plagues, and nothing less.
