Other than its emphasis of the Passover as a type and foreshadowing of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, this year’s manual covers the events from Joseph’s death through the Israelites’ crossing of the Red Sea in a single chapter.

Both manuals offer occasional slight commentary and request class members to apply lessons to their lives, but basically both lessons are stories.
