Book of Exodus

Introduction and Chapter 1
Title: The word “Exodus” means the way out.
Writer and Date: The book was written by Moses approximately 1445-1405 B.C.

Key Places: I. Israel in Egypt (1:1—12:36)

II. Israel in the Wilderness (12:37—18:27)


III. Israel at Mt. Sinai (19:1—40:38)

Key People: A. Moses – God’s deliverer, lawgiver, and leader
B. Miriam – prophetess and older sister of Moses
C. Pharaohan arrogant, proud Egyptian leader
D. Aaron – brother of Moses and first high priest
E. Jethro – Moses’ father-in-law
F. Joshua – Moses’ assistant and military leader of Israel

Key Themes: 1) Redemption – God’s people are set free from bondage
2) God’s power – God led Israel out of Egypt
3) Ten Commandments – the absolutes of spiritual & moral life

4) The Tabernaclea movable place of worship



Key Verses: Exodus 6:6-7 – Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments: And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the Lord your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.

Christ in Exodus: There are no direct prophecies, but there are many pictures of Christ such as the Passover lamb, the manna, the water from the rock, the tabernacle, and the high priest.

(John 5:39) – Search the scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life, and they are they which testify of ME.
Chapter 1 – “The Persecution of God’s People”
I. The New Generation (1:1-7)


  1. The historical connection to Genesis

The bondage of Israel in Egypt had been predicted in Genesis 15:13-16. The family had been living in the land of Goshen in Egypt for 430 years!


  1. The amazing multiplication of people

God also fulfilled the promise of multiplying the people (Genesis 46:3). Jacob’s original seventy became over two million. They increased in spite of the persecution that came.

According to Numbers 1:46, there were over 600,000 men of military age. The total

number of people was probably 2 to 3 million.
II. The New Pharaoh (1:8-14)


  1. He had no ties to Joseph




  1. He felt a threat from Israel




  1. He imposed terrible slavery on Israel – This is a picture of sin and Satan as a hard taskmaster. The Bible says, the way of transgressors is hard. Pharaoh wanted slavery to crush the spirit of the Jews, and he wanted many of them to die physically. Instead the cruel treatment toughened them and made them desire freedom.

III. The New Strategy (1:15-22)



  1. Pharaoh’s first plan to kill all baby boys

  2. God’s intervention through the midwives – These midwives risked their lives to spare the lives of the babies.

  3. Pharoah’s second plan to kill all baby boys – This is the first of several times when Satan instigated the entire elimination of the Jews. We remember the plan of Haman in the Book of Esther. We remember the plan of Hitler in the Holocaust. And on March 1, 1953, only eight years after the Holocaust that killed six million Jews, Josef Stalin unveiled a plan to eliminate the Jews of the Soviet Union, another three million. The plan was supposed to go into effect on March 9, but it never did because a day after Stalin presented it, he suddenly dropped dead of a stroke!


Lasting Lessons:

  • God is faithful to His promises. (He made a covenant with Abraham that his descendants would be multiplied.)

  • Bitter trials often prepare us for the best things in life. In the New Testament, believers are called “overcomers.”

  • When we fear God we need not fear man.

(Acts 5:29) – We ought to obey God rather than man.

A question to consider: “Why stay in bondage to people who don’t care about you, when God does care about you?” Here’s another question: “Why remain in bondage to sin and Satan when God offers you complete freedom?”
