Over the next coming weeks, we’re going to be doing an in-depth study of the book of Exodus. Before we begin, Paul gives us a review of Genesis and a short introduction to Exodus. He talks about how God is introduced to us as the Redeemer and how we can begin to see Jesus in the Old Testament pages.
Review of Genesis (0:00 - 13:59)
The story of Genesis goes from the Garden of Eden to the Grave of Joseph. It’s the written history of man’s continuous failure to be what God meant him to be.
Sin comes from one individual (Eve), to one couple (Adam and Eve), to one family (Cain and Abel), then to communities, cities, nations, and finally the entire world. It all culminates in God finally saying, “I regret that I ever made man.”
God later chooses one man from among these fallen people: Abram.
The Promise spreads from one man (Abram) to one couple (Abraham and Sarah) to one family (Isaac to Jacob and to the sons of Jacob). They start out as seventy men, women, and children and grow to over two million.
Introduction to Exodus (13:59 - 17:54)
After 400 years of silence, we find God’s people still in a foreign land. They were originally there to simply survive through a famine, which should have only taken 5 years. Instead, they get comfortable and settle there.
In scripture, we see that Egypt is a representation of Sin, and Pharaoh is a representation of Satan.
God is introduced as Redeemer (19:58 - 27:53)
Redeem: to obtain the release or restoration of, as from captivity, by paying a ransom.
God loves to rescue people from trouble.
He loves to get people out of distress.
He loves to remove the burdens of life.
If you trust in God as these people did, He will get you out. It is His will to get you out.
Foreshadowing of Jesus (27:53 - 37:19)
We’ll see silhouettes of the Gospel in Exodus. Throughout this series, we will go back and forth between Exodus and the New Testament. We will use the full-color pictures of the New Textmate to fill in these silhouettes in Exodus.
The most important one that’s coming up is the Passover Lamb.
“Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin (death) of the world.”
We often think that Blood = Death, but from God’s perspective, Blood = Life. So when Jesus gave his blood for the forgiveness of our sins, Jesus used his life to cover our death.
