The book of Exodus begins in Egypt with the birth of Moses and ends at Sinai with the finished tabernacle filled with the glory of the Lord. It was written by Moses around 1450-1440 BC primarily to record Israel’s deliverance from Egypt and how Israel developed as a nation. Exodus was written during Israel’s wanderings in the wilderness.
ISRAEL IN EGYPT
ISRAEL IN THE WILDERNESS
ISRAEL AT SINAI
The book of Exodus contains more miracles than any other Old Testament book and, also, contains the 10 commandments. The Israelites had been slaves in Egypt for 400 years, oppressed by Pharaoh and treated cruelly. God chose Moses, an Israelite, raised by Pharaoh’s daughter, to lead the Israelites out of bondage in Egypt. Through a series of 10 plagues God brought on Egypt, Pharaoh was convinced to let Israel go but he soon followed and was cut off and drowned by yet another miracle at the parting of the Red Sea. The Ten Commandments were given to the people at Mt. Sinai. Civil and Ceremonial laws were given later in the book of Exodus. God instructed Israel on how to live their lives on a daily basis both morally and spiritually.
