Exodus is the account of God’s miraculous rescue of his people from Egypt, the institution of Israel’s greatest festival, the Passover, the provision of God’s law and the building of the tabernacle, which was the forerunner of the temple – all looking forward to future fulfilment in Christ.
Michael Bentley takes us on this journey with clarity in a way that will help both preacher and congregation alike.
‘The New Testament contains many references made to the book of Exodus. An understanding of this exciting book will give us a better grasp of the attributes of God and of his wonderful plan of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ……‘Michael Bentley … provides a clear, organized exposition of Scripture. His down-to-earth style helps students of Scripture, both preachers and their congregations, to grasp the meaning of the text without unnecessary difficulty.’
