Introduction to Exodus
Topic: Expository Scripture: Exodus 1:1–1:7
Synopsis: Exodus is the epic story of God saving Israel from slavery in Egypt and leading them to Mt. Sinai to be his own covenant people. In this book we see God’s faithfulness to Abraham, his sovereignty over nature and nations, his awesome holiness and his fatherly love. God’s redeeming of Israel from bondage is truly the defining saving event in the Old Testament. And yet the story doesn’t stop there. Exodus anticipates and foreshadows the greater salvation that would come through Jesus Christ.
