Holy Week Worship
The Book of Exodus
Lent began with Ash Wednesday on March 6th and so does our emphasis on Moses’ book of Exodus. In it, Moses asks Pharaoh to let God’s people go seven times (Exodus 5:1; 7:16; 8:1, 20; 9:1, 13; 10:3) and Pharaoh finally does it! When he does, God’s salvation is so amazing that the event becomes the Gospel of the Old Testament. Israel’s Scriptures mention the exodus 125 times!
Throughout the book of Exodus God reveals who he is through his absence and his presence, through his silence and his speech, through his wrath and his mercy, and through his judgment and his amazing grace. In doing so, the book paints a beautiful portrait of Jesus.
