The second book of Moses and the second book in the Bible is Exodus. The dominant history recorded in the book is the departure of Israel from Egypt. Moses leads God’s people, and many important events in the history of Israel are chronicled in the book of Exodus. As you read this week, meditate on God’s presence, protection, and provision. See the foreshadowing of Christ our Passover (1 Corinthians 5:7) in the readings this week. On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups and the Sunday sermon.
