The dramatic events depicted in the Book of Exodus represent the fulfillment of God’s promises of descendants and land to the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph.   Some of the most well-known and important stories for both Christians and Jews are told in Exodus – the burning bush; the plagues, the Passover meal; deliverance from slavery in Egypt and the crossing of the Red Sea; the manna and quail; the Ten Commandments on Mt. Sinai; the Ark of the Covenant.

The challenge we will address in this series is how to move from the “facts” of the Exodus stories to the rich theological meanings contained in them.
