What is this book about?

Picking up the thread of redemptive history with Abraham’s descendants enslaved in Egypt, the book of Exodus identifies Israel as God’s chosen people, and prepares them to receive the promise made to Abraham.


How does it point to Jesus?

Jesus is the true Moses, the true Tabernacle, and the true Israel, in whom we are delivered from slavery, made able to obey the law of God, and given access to His presence, having been made holy by the blood of the Passover Lamb.
