Michael P. V. Barrett surveys Exodus, giving special attention to the theological message of this formative Old Testament book.
In doing so, he demonstrates that the real history of the exodus providentially serves as a paradigm of salvation.
Through the three main themes of misery, deliverance, and gratitude, Exodus reveals God’s power and faithfulness in keeping His covenant promise to deliver His people from the bondage of sin to the service of grace. Thus, it is pictorial prophecy of spiritual truths that find ultimate fulfillment in the person and work of Christ.
Reading The Gospel of Exodus will help you do more than learn key facts of the exodus. It will teach you why those facts matter and help you see the spiritual benefits God intends for us regarding our own need of grace.
