I recently watched the new version of the 10 commandments movie and I realized something that I never really payed attention to when I read it. I am talking about when Moses throws his staff to the ground and it turns to a snake and the pharaoh does the same but with two snakes. Even though Moses's snake (God) ate the pharaohs snakes created by his God/s, I am a little confused? How was the pharaoh able to do this. Was it the work of the devil or is there a lesser god. There was some kind of force behind the pharaohs magic. And how did the Egyptions come up with the idea that there were thousands of gods anyway?
