I Will Be with Your Mouth | Exodus 3:16-4:17

The text before us is a direct continuation of what we studied last week. After four hundred years of slavery in Egypt and after Moses’ forty years of living in the wilderness of Midian, God came down to reveal Himself to Moses and to send him back to Egypt to deliver His people out of …

What ‘I AM WHO I AM’ Means | John Piper

In John Piper's book Providence, he very helpfully lists out ten dimensions of meaning that are declared by God's name, Yahweh, and His declaration of Himself, I AM WHO I AM. Although I did not have time last Sunday's sermon to read such a lengthy quotation, it is certainly worth sharing here (and the book …

Out of Egypt, Through Wilderness, Into Covenant: Introducing Exodus

The ESV Study Bible appropriately introduces the book of Exodus, saying: 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 …
