EXODUS 1:1-16
Dr. Jerry Vines

Most of the books of the Bible have one great overriding,
dominant thing. For instance, the book of Genesis is the book about
creation. The same is true about the book of Exodus. It has a
dominating theme. Genesis is the book of creation -- Exodus is the book
of redemption. In Genesis we learn how man became a sinner. In Exodus

their wilderness journey. So, you have the trip, the tablets and you
have the tent. In this account of the book of Exodus you see God's

purpose, as we read through the book of Exodus. Actually, we will study
this book on two main tracks. First of all, we are going to study it on
the historical track. In other words, we are going to look at this
history of the Children of Israel, led out of the bondage of Egypt
