We are continuing our new study of the book of Exodus on Wednesday night at the Frasers’ home. Please join us for this time of prayer, song, and the study of scripture.
In preparation for Lesson 3, please read Exodus 2:11-25 and review Acts 6:8-7:60 as we will explore the overarching story that takes on a new dynamic in the events of the Exodus of God’s people from their place of bondage and grief.
The Message of the Exodus Event
“The exodus motif is the Bible’s grand narrative, and it is one of the best stories because it encompasses all the major aspects of God’s work of salvation through Christ: redemption from sin, suffering, and the tyranny of the devil (the exodus from Egypt and Pharaoh); bringing us into the very presence of God (represented at Sinai); wilderness wanderings (pilgrimage toward a special place); and possession of the land of Canaan (ultimately symbolizing entitlement to the world-to-come; cf. Heb 4) in order to be a unified, holy people in a place where they might worship God perpetually.”
