Of all the books of the Bible, Exodus gives us the fullest picture of God’s redemptive work. This book begins with God’s people in slavery in Egypt, but ends with the glory of God appearing among His people in the tabernacle in the wilderness; what a wonderful picture of redemption is this!

From this we see that the purpose of Christ’s redemptive work in the New Testament is not merely to save us from our sins, but to deliver us from the world (Acts 2:40, Gal. 1:4), today’s Egypt, and the authority of Satan, today’s Pharaoh (John 12:31; 2 Cor. 4:4), so God can gain His kingdom on the earth and build up the church as His dwelling place.

So, in this podcast we come once again to the book of Exodus, focusing on the struggle the Children of Israel went through to leave Egypt behind, including how Pharaoh bargained with Moses, offering him compromises to get the Children of Israel to stay in the land.

All of this provides many important lessons for us as those who seek to follow Christ today (1 Cor. 10:5-6).
