Exodus: Redemption from Bondage (5 of 54)
Series: Through the Bible Survey
Stan Coffey


AUTHORSHIP: Throughout the Bible, the first five books of the law are viewed as a unit offered by Moses. (Mark 12:26; Luke 2:22-24; John 7:19-23). Furthermore, Exodus specifically names Moses as the author. (Exodus 17:14; Exodus 24:3-4; Exodus 34:27).

DATE: Since the book is overwhelmingly attributed to Moses its date would be after the exodus from Egypt, which occurred in 1445BC and before the death of Moses 1405BC.

And so 400 years passed between the end of the book of Genesis and the beginning of the book of Exodus.

When Exodus opens, the Israelites have been under the bondage of Egypt's ruler, Pharaoh, and in Exodus Moses describes how God delivered them from bondage. So Exodus is preeminently the Book of Redemption in the Old Testament. It begins in darkness and gloom and yet ends in glory.

Throughout the scriptures, redemption is centered in a man, the man Christ Jesus. Moses was a type of Christ, Egypt a type of the world, Pharaoh a type of Satan, and Israel a type of man enslaved and needing to be-redeemed.
1. Moses - A Picture of Christ
