Exodus

January 20, 2013

The Book of Exodus is about one thing: God. God pursues His people, God uses Moses to deliver His people, God proves His power through supernatural experiences, God sets up the rules for how He will be worshiped and God provides instructions for how the tabernacle should be built. God is clear when He says to His people, “You shall not have any other gods before me” (Exodus 20:3). No other created being or object is even worthy of the name.

Author

Moses, as identified by Joshua, Malachi, Jesus and Paul.

Date

Approx. 1450-1410 B.C. during the forty years that the nation of Israel wandered in the wilderness.

Theme

Israel’s Birth

This is Israel's birth from the womb of Egypt and the birth of a covenant with God, of a nation and of national worship.

Additional Info

Exodus is the story of the birth of God’s people. Having grown up in plush Egypt, the people of God (between 2-3 million of them) are miraculously delivered so they can eventually have their own land and nation. Exodus shows God’s divine protection, provision and instruction for His people.
