Exodus 15b-17a: Manna Mania

The manna episode of Exodus 16 echoes throughout all of the Old and New Testaments. Passages all over Scripture, from Deuteronomy 8:3 to Psalm 105:40 to Revelation 2:17 all have clearly point to the time God rained down bread from Heaven. There were simply too many to reference them all in a single sermon, and…

Exodus 12c-13a: Echoes of Exodus

You may have noticed in this week’s text (Exodus 12:43-13:16) that there were a lot of familiar-sounding verses. Exodus 12:1-14 covers the Passover, 12:15-20 the Feast of Unleavened Bread, then 12:21-27 once again covers Passover. 12:43-49 once again cover the Passover, and 13:3-10 looks once again to the Feast of Unleavened Bread. So we could…

The hardness of Pharaoh’s heart has stimulated a great deal of discussion, both in our local church and the history of the Church universal. Did you know that the Apostle Paul uses Pharaoh as an example when discussing the future of Israel and God’s covenant with them? In Romans 9-11, Paul discusses God’s past, present…

Exodus 6: Fun with Genealogies

OK – I understand… most churchgoers don’t jump out of bed, eager for a chance to study genealogies! But 2 Timothy 3:16-17 tells us that every Scripture is there for a reason, including the more difficult ones like Exodus 6. So this Sunday I tried to focus on the main thing: why does Exodus 6…

Exodus 4b CRF – The hzq of God

Today in the sermon, I teased the coming theological difficulty of Pharaoh’s hard heart. Who hardened it: God or Pharaoh? And how do we reconcile these statements together? Exodus 4:21 was the first verse to bring the issue up: God says to Moses, “I Myself will harden Pharaoh’s heart, so that he will not let…
