This commentary on the text of Exodus has been written for the building up of the church. It not only provides insights into the book of Exodus, but also clear and concise application. It is a book for everyone who wants to understand better what God says to us in his Word. The author writes, “It is my hope that pastors will use it for sermon preparation, and others for Bible study preparation and personal study.”

Dr. Currid provides solid exegesis in an accessible way matched with practical application that displays the relevance of this Old Testament book for the twenty-first century. This volume covers the first 18 chapters of Exodus, telling the account of the deliverance of the children of Israel from Egypt to their arrival at Sinai. It is the story of the persecution of God’s people, their release from the domination of Pharaoh’s Egypt to the crossing of the Red Sea. Central to this narrative is the birth, life, and ministry of Moses.

Top Highlights

“The Hebrew word is used in the Old Testament not only to refer to a bridegroom, but to a son-in-law, a father-in-law and even a mother-in-law. It is used of Jethro in 3:1 and 4:18 to describe his family relationship to Moses. The basic idea of the word stresses that a person has been made part of a family, that he or she has become a blood relative through a covenant relationship. Thus, Moses’ son has been circumcised as a symbol of his entrance into the covenant community/family.” (Page 116)

“The lamb is to be procured on the tenth day of the first month. That specific day is important: Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) occurs on the tenth day of the seventh month (Lev. 23:27), and the Israelites cross the Jordan River into the promised land on the tenth day of the first month. The number ten often symbolizes completion in the Bible: for example, the Ten Commandments, the ten plagues, etc. Here it may signify the complete redemption of Israel out of Egypt.” (Page 239)

“Yahweh’s power over the gods of Egypt is clearly displayed in this image. The ancient Egyptians regarded Amon-Ra, the personification of the sun, as their chief deity. For them his rising in the east was the symbol of life and resurrection. He was the creator-god. However, when Amon-Ra sank in the west this was understood to represent death and the underworld. When Yahweh wills it, the sun is darkened, and Amon-Ra is hidden and unable to shine upon his worshippers. During the ninth plague Amon-Ra does not rise and does not give life; his realm is death, judgement and hopelessness.” (Page 225)
