Meaning: Exodus is a Greek word meaning “exit”, “departure” or “going out”.
Penned: 1445-1404 B.C.
Position: the 2nd book of the Bible, Old Testament, and Pentateuch
300 years separate Genesis from Exodus.
In Exodus, we’ll read about the freedom for God’s people from slavery and the beginning of national identity. This book gives us an insight into Hebrew customs and it emphasizes God’s covenant. The deliverance from bondage is a beautiful analogy of the sinner’s redemption from the bondage of sin. God is presented as:
^ The great “I AM”;
^ The One Who controls history;
^ A holy God;
^ The God Who remembers, and
^ The God Who speaks.
Exodus records the 10 Commandments, the 10 plagues, the beginning of the Passover, the parting of the Red Sea and the building of the Tabernacle.
Soon, I’ll be uploading the study for Exodus and I invite you to join me. Until then, study the Word and continue to look heavenward for we need to hold onto God more than ever given the times that we’re living in. The coming of our King draws near.
