    believe that the primary implication of this passage is a better understanding of the character of God and his role in the lives of his people. This is a major theme in all of Exodus, as well as specifically in the revelation of God’s name to Moses and to the people of that time. He is a God that loves all of his creation and desires for all people to come into a saving relationship with him (1 Timothy 2:3-4). To this end he voices the words: “Bring my sons out of Egypt” and “I will be with you” (Exodus 3:10,12). God hears his people’s troubles and wants for them to be relieved. His means of reassuring us, as it often is in scripture, is that he will be with us. God’s presence means much more than simply a feeling of peace—it implies power. Existence in His presence means: “You need not rely upon your own powers only… I shall give you strength” (Cassuto 36). An excellent example of God being with his people is seen soon after this exchange with Moses as he leads the Israelites through the wilderness and into battle. This exemplifies the love that God has for his people. In Exodus, this love extends to his compassion for the…

    God uses certain people to impact many others. After reading the first twenty chapters of Exodus, it is clear that God was still living out his promise to Abraham through Moses. Moses’ lineage traces back to Jacob, Isaac, and Abraham. God placed the infant Israelite, Moses, in Pharaoh’s household, speaks to Moses, uses Moses to free the Israelites and finally taught the Israelites of God’s laws in these chapters. God’s covenant to Abraham included all of Abraham’s decedents taking over the…

    b. Manna of the Messiah During forty years of wandering in the desert, God gave the Israelites manna as a daily food in order to feed them and sustain them during those years. Manna was the bread from heaven that God has given the Israelites to help them on the journey from Egypt to Canaan. In the book of Exodus, the Israelites received the manna every morning during their time in the wilderness (Ex 16: 13-14). When the Israelites saw it they asked, “What is it?” (Ex 16:15a RSVCE) In Hebrew,…

    Artifact Report The Exodus is an important event, not just as a historical view, but for a religious one as well. For something as significant as it is, there is very little evidence to support the claim; which is referenced in the bible. An event which freed thousands of slaves from the hands of Egypt, summoned plagues, parted a sea, and drowned an army. However, if you were a superior nation, ruling as a god, and lost nearly everything to a slave revolt, would you want to document your losses?…

    In Chapter three and four of Exodus, Moses has an encounter with God. God appears before Moses in the form of a burning bush to give him a mission; he is to go to Egypt to talk to Pharaoh about releasing the Israelites from slavery in the land. This passage is significant, because it establishes the employing of Moses to speak for God to both the Pharaoh and the Israelites. The commission that Moses is given in this passage is what leads to the Exodus, the giving of the Law at Mt. Sinai, and the…

    The book of Exodus reveals God as a character capable of an array of dispositions, yet glory is the aspect illustrated with the most distinction and frequency. It is in Exodus that while God is stilled explained using anthropomorphism, the Israelites develop a less individual relationship with God but more of a respectful, fearful association. They must have this perspective as well as an intermediary, often Moses or sacrifice, because of God’s overwhelming glory. His magnificence is depicted as…
