What is the book of Exodus?

Asked by Dominique

hello, Im curious about the origin of the Book of Exodus’ name. Is it at
all related to the exodus ie. the departure of the jews out of Egypt?

Thank you and God Bless


Hi Dominique,

The short answer is yes. The book of Exdus relates entirely to the Exodus of Israel from Egypt and the establishment of Israel as God’s people. This was such a significant event in the history of Israel and ultimately in God plans of redemption that it warrants its own book.

I assume from your question that you may not have read it? If that is so then let me encourage you to do so. It is a significant event for Christians to understand for almost everything that Jesus did, he did as a fulfilment of ideas in Exodus.

cheers

David
