Week 7 - Moses and the Exodus

The account of Moses and the Exodus has been told and retold over and over again in books, TV, and movies. Unfortunately, it has often only been told as an isolated event in the greater history of the world and the deeper meaning of the events are missed.

There are two big things that are regularly overlooked. The first thing is that Moses is a type of Christ and foreshadows Jesus’ leading His people out of their slavery to sin. Moses is not THE Savior but he is a savior sent to save God’s people and much of his life echoes what the true Savior, God’s Son, will do in the future.

Secondly, the story of the Exodus is neither the beginning nor the end of the story. Instead, it is a chapter in God’s greater plan to save the world.  The book of Exodus shows God’s continued faithfulness to His people and that He has not forgotten His promise to bring a Savior to the world through Abraham’s descendants.
