Rev. Dr. David Adams, Associate Professor of Exegetical Theology at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, joins host Rev. AJ Espinosa to study Exodus 5.“O Lord, why have you done evil to this people? Why did you ever send me?” Moses despairs in Exodus 5 because the Israelites went from believing in him to wishing he’d never shown up. This is exactly why Pharaoh increased the Israelites’ workload, to turn them against a potential rebel leader. All this however plays into God’s larger plan to save His people “in the sight” of everyone. He does no evil; rather He turns trouble into salvation, just as He did with His Son, who let Himself be lifted up by an oppressive regime in the sight of everyone.
