Thus the LORD Saved Israel | Exodus 14:15-31

In a sea of memorable moments, we finally come to what is likely the most well-known moment of the book of Exodus, if not all of Scripture. More than Moses' meeting with God through the burning bush, more than his infant ride down the Nile, more than any of the plagues, more than Pharaoh's stubborn …

The LORD Will Fight for You | Exodus 13:17-14:14

Here the stubborn, hard-heartedness of Pharaoh will cause the king to chase after his runaway slaves. Though triumphant for a moment, the Israelites will …

Thrust Out of Egypt | Exodus 12:29-42

Here at last, after all the prophesies and predictions given, we now have before us the account of two of the most significant events in both the book of Exodus as well as the Bible as a whole: the tenth plague and the exodus. Although it may seem strange that these things that have had …

Judging the Gods | Exodus 12:12 and on all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am the LORD. Exodus 12:12 ESV We have already observed that the plagues of Egypt often targeted specific Egyptian gods.

One Plague More | Exodus 11

Following the explosiveness of the first nine plagues, we come now to a very short chapter that serves as an interlude before the tenth and final plague is poured out upon Pharaoh and upon Egypt. Here Moses concludes his dialogue with Pharaoh for good, promising a great wail of death throughout Egypt to come. As …

After moving through the first two three-plague cycles, we come now to the final set of three: the plagues of hail, locust, and darkness. WHOEVER FEARED THE WORD OF THE LORD // VERSES 13-35 As we have seen, the LORD’s plagues against Pharaoh and the land of Egypt have been intensifying each time. First, God …

Flies, Cattle, Boils | Exodus 8:20-9:12

Last week we began to study the ten great plagues that the LORD brought upon the land of Egypt in response to Pharaoh’s stubborn refusal to let God’s people go.

Pharaoh Will Not Listen | Exodus 6:10-7:13

Last week we observed God's second revelation of Himself to Moses, and we should note that such there is a similar repetition to all of chapters 5-6. You see, in chapters 1-4, we find this overall pattern: God's people suffer and cry out, God hears their cry and reveals Himself to Moses, and God commissions …

Bridegroom of Blood | Exodus 4:18-31

Although this passage can be easily overlooked as a necessary interlude between God's appearance to Moses and the showdown with Pharaoh, what we find is a rich picture of Moses' first faltering steps of obedience and much foreshadowing of the wonders yet to come. The theme that ties these passages together is Moses' long-awaited return …
