Lesson 1: The Prince

Readings: Exodus 1: 5-22; 2: 1-25

Moses is the central figure in the book of Exodus. Exodus means ‘departure’ and as we continue with studies in this book, we shall see why it has been given this name. Moses’ parents were both Hebrews (Israelites) from the family or tribe of Levi. Levi was one of the twelve sons of Jacob. Jacob had been named Israel by God.

Lesson 2: The Shepherd

Readings: Exodus 3: 1-16; 4: 1-17

Another forty years passed after Moses fled from Egypt, before the incident of the burning bush occurred. So Moses was now eighty years old.

Lesson 3: The Leader

Readings: Exodus 7: 1-25

When Moses had come back to Egypt and met his brother Aaron, God continued to tell them what they should do and what they should say to Pharaoh. God also showed them that He knew exactly what would happen and how Pharaoh and the Egyptians would react.

Lesson 4: The Deliverer

Readings: Exodus 11: 1-10; 12: 1-13, 21-42

This tenth and final plague (punishment) described in the Bible Reading was the worst and the most devastating of them all – for the Egyptians. But for the Israelites, who did exactly what God told them to do, it was the means of deliverance from slavery and the start of their journey to the Promised Land. For us, today, it can have tremendous significance too, because God designed it to be a picture of what the Lord Jesus Christ would do for us.
