Exodus: The Greatest (OT) Story Ever Told


Professor Thomas Egger

Professor Thomas Egger
Assistant Professor of Exegetical Theology

The book of Exodus is foundational to the Bible's story of salvation — finding its conclusion and fulfillment in Jesus Christ. As the events of the Exodus were unfolding, Moses commanded the people: “Remember this day in which you came out from Egypt, out of the house of slavery, for by a strong hand the Lord brought you out from this place.” They were to tell this story, time and again — passing it on to their children and grandchildren, throughout their generations.

Today, the vivid episodes of Exodus stand as an enduring revelation of the character of our God and of His ways with His people. Join Egger, assistant professor of Exegetical Theology, as he illuminates the book of Exodus for the Christian faith and our lives today.
