    Pharaoh was deceived by the woman, Sarai. As I have mentioned in previous blog posts, the number forty represents an entire life cycle since the gestation period of a human is 40 weeks. Recognizing an exodus pattern in the ministry of Elijah and Elisha helps us to get a firmer grasp on what God accomplished through them. Exodus teaches us what we should expect from God. The modern scholarly consensus is that the figure of Moses is mythical, [2] and while, as William G.

    During battle, whenever Moses raises his arms, the Israelites are able to rout their opponents. He even asks God for the name he is to present to the Israelites. The exodus is institutionalized and made foundational for the future self-understanding of the people of God. God tells Moses to ascend the mountain. Moses goes up the mountain into the presence of God, who pronounces the Covenant Code a detailed code of ritual and civil lawand promises Canaan to them if they obey.

    There God called him to be his prophet and lead his people to the land of Canaan, but there was a problem. He names his son Gershom. But when you view it from the standpoint of spiritual wisdom, the contradictions, mistakes, and silliness clears up and the Bible truly begins to make sense. Representative of another life cycle, Moses herds sheep in the dessert where he has plenty of time to work out his inner conflict. In my next post I will continue this series with Moses. As the perfect Lamb of God, He took away our sin permanently when He sacrificed Himself on our behalf.

Meditation is a very holy act. An addict may even begin to steal from friends and family to support the habit—to obey the master. These influences serve to reinforce the conclusion that the Book of Exodus originated in the exiled Jewish community of 6th-century BCE Babylonbut not all the sources are Mesopotamian: the story of Moses's flight to Midian following the murder of the Egyptian overseer may draw on the Egyptian Story of Sinuhe.

As with Genesis, early Jewish traditions name Moses as the most likely and best qualified person to have authored Exodus. Personally, I believe it can take many lifetimes of meditating to achieve such a state of consciousness.

After a few of these experiences, I quickly came to understand how holy of the act meditation truly is. Think of a forest fire.

Bible: The Old Testament

A new pharaoh ascended to the throne, and this pharaoh was unaware of the history of all Joseph did to help Egypt.

Slavery exists in many forms. The very thing one uses to find salvation becomes the bondage from which they need saving. Every passage needs to be understood how it first relates to Hebrews before it is applied to believers.

The Egyptian oppression may be based on the harsh treatment of Canaanites inside Canaan in the 2nd millennium BCE, when the region was ruled by Egypt, and these memories could later have been transferred to Egypt itself as a " collective memory ", from which an exodus story was created.

But the details are brought to light through Old Testament passages. The bush is the tree of life spinal column and the fire represents the metaphysical fire traveling up the spine to be ignited in the pineal gland where kundalini serpent fire energy has risen. Moses ascends the mountain, God dictates the Ten Commandments the Ritual Decalogueand Moses writes them on the tablets.

For instance, there are a number of connections between Moses and Joshua as a pair and Elijah and Elisha as a pair.

Moses comes down from the mountain, smashes the stone tablets in anger, and commands the Levites to massacre the unfaithful Israelites.

God then plagued Pharaoh on account of her, while Abram received many gifts from Pharaoh and the Egyptians. Horeb means desolate and barren. The primary audience for the book of Hebrews was the New Testament Hebrews. I enjoyed it. Although the quote expresses the basic thought, reading the psalm in its entirety fills in the picture.

Why Study the Book of Exodus?

As the perfect Lamb of God, He took away our sin permanently when He sacrificed Himself on our behalf. In Midian Moses marries and has a child. What's the big idea?

Moses comes down from the mountain after forty days, only to find that Aaron and the Israelites have now erected an idol—a golden calf that they are worshipping in revelry, in direct defiance of the ten commandments.

God also tells Moses to remove his sandals because he is standing on Holy ground.Feb 18,  · Exodus (Understanding the Bible Commentary Series) [James K.

And then from there on — and this is chapter 9: you are barely a third of the way through the book of Luke — from there on, you are reminded five times that Jesus has resolutely set his face to. The book of Exodus is a key to understanding the Bible. Without it, the Bible would lack three early scenes: deliverance, covenant and worship.

Exodus provides the events and narrative, the themes and imagery foundational for understanding the story of Israel and of Jesus. You can read Exodus on your own, and its main themes will be clear enough.
