The Holy Family route in Egypt | The Footsteps of Jesus in Egypt



Egypt has been known since the dawn of history as an oasis of security and safety, the home of civilizations, and the cradle of religions. A good example of this is its embrace of many of the prophets of the Old Testament; among them are Ibrahim, Jacob, and the Prophet Moses - who was polite with the wisdom of the Egyptians - and Youssef Al-Siddiq - who came to Egypt during the days of Pharaoh until he became a minister And the sacred family in the country went from one extreme to the other to bless it, and for the idolatry to destroy its idols and implant a blessed spiritual implant that will last with time.


In the year 1 BC, Gabriel, the angel of the Lord, appeared to a fiancée, betrothed, whose name was Mary, to preach her the birth of a son named Jesus. Of course, the angel realized that her fiancé, Youssef El-Naggar, would be suspicious of this issue, so he also appeared and assured him. It was clear that the sky was busy with this birth. With these two, a vision appeared for three kings from Persia and foretold them of the news; an angel appeared to one of the rabbis of the Jews and preached the birth of his son named John the Baptist, and he foretold that this would be a sign of the birth of Jesus. The Torah was full of ancient prophecies talking about the details of this birth, its location, what the kings will give this child, and his journey to the land of Egypt, as well as the madness of the king who will lead to this journey.
