Exodus 28

Now as you turn with me to Exodus 28 .. who can tell us the theme of the book of Exodus? BONDAGE NO MORE! THE WAY OUT! In fact .. that's what the name EXODUS means: the way out!
God's given us the book of Exodus to help guide us out of bondage .. to help get us out of bondage. And I dare say that the majority of us find ourselves living in bondage rather than in freedom.

Now that's important to know as we come to Exodus 28. We're about to read about the "garments of glory" worn by the High Priest. And it's those "garments of glory" that ...
