Delivering a Deliverer

Sun, Jan 16, 2022
Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. And he said to his people, “Behold, the people of Israel are too many and too mighty for us. Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, lest they multiply, and, if war breaks out, they join our enemies and fight against us and escape from the land.” - Exodus 1:8-10 (ESV) I like to get to the movies early. I know you can see previews online. But there is something about a trailer on the big screen. You get a glimpse at what is coming. You get to take in all the cinematic flair that can be packed into about two minutes. It’s a lot of fun. The opening chapters of Exodus are like a movie trailer. They preview the big ideas that are coming. You get to know the characters. And you see you how they will shaped by narrative. This week we continue in our series in Exodus. I want to encourage you to read through chapters 1-2. They provide a bridge from the close of Genesis and setup the grand story of God’s deliverance through a unique deliverer. It's gonna be fun to watch.
