We’re excited to study the book of Exodus together as a church family. This study is intended to help you grow in your understanding of the Gospel and how it applies to you today. We encourage you to use the H.E.A.R. Bible Study Method to help you go deeper into your study of Exodus.
While you’re studying on your own, join a LifeGroup and study it with others from our church. If you would like a printed study guide, please contact our church office.

About the Book
Exodus is an adventure story par excellence. It features a cruel villain (Pharaoh), an unlikely hero (Moses), overwhelming disasters (the plagues), a spectacular deliverance (crossing the Red Sea), a long journey (through the wilderness), a mountaintop experience (where Moses received the Ten Commandments), and a grand finale (the presence of God coming down to the ark of the covenant, filling the tabernacle with glory). The story features unexpected setbacks and unpredictable delays, magic tricks (from Pharaoh’s sorcerers) and miracles, feasts and festivals, music and dancing, and many close encounters with the living God. God’s purpose in all of this was to show his glory by fulfilling the promises he made to his people in the covenant. The exodus is the archetypal deliverance of the OT—the definitive salvation event that established the identity of Israel as the people of God and demonstrated the character of their Deliverer as the God who saves.
