The Exodus from Egypt


February 14 – March 27, 2016

The exodus from Egypt is the foundational story of God’s people—not only in the literal sense that they became a nation after their release from captivity, but also in a deeper figurative sense in which the exodus story shapes the very core of their identity and their understanding of God. The exodus is a foundational story for Christians, too, standing as the most profound example of God’s concern for the oppressed, a concern which is embodied in the life and death of Jesus. This Lenten season, we will trace the story of Israel’s exodus from Egypt and at the same time reflect on the many ways in which the world is still held in bondage, always with an eye toward the redemption that has come in Jesus.
