The Message of Exodus: The Days of Our Pilgrimage
THE WHOLE STORY of the Old Testament book of Exodus is a covenant narrative. The God who pledged himself to Abraham and his descendants remained the faithful God – he made promises, and honoured them. He revealed himself to Moses, claimed Israel as his own, brought them out of slavery in Egypt, cared for them through long wilderness years, and finally gave them the land he had pledged to their fathers.
In this warm-hearted and insightful exposition, Alec Motyer unfolds what Exodus testifies about the Bible's God, in what ways it points to Jesus Christ and heralds him in advance, and how it bears on the nature and life of the people of God – their redemption, obedience, security and inheritance.
