The Exodus, already anticipated in the early chapters of Genesis, is the subject matter of most of the Pentateuch. Not merely the beginning of Israel's story as a nation, the Exodus functioned as an enduring foundation for its ongoing life, memorialized in rituals, feasts, and laws, recounted in worship, its events paradigmatic for Israel's understanding of God, recapitulated in its later history, and indicative of its future hope. The Exodus is no less prominent and foundational in the New Testament, where it arguably provides the principal framework within which the redemption of Christ is conceived.
In this course we will explore the expansive role that the Exodus plays in the Scriptures, from the beginning of Genesis to the end of Revelation, and in the continuing life of the people of God. Through this course, students should attain a firmer purchase upon the unity and the breadth of the scriptural witness and upon the import of its dominant themes.
Join us during the week of September 18-22, 2023.
