Exodus was the key salvation event in the history of Israel in which God liberated His people from oppression in Egypt, destroyed their oppressors, made them His own people and led them to a better land. Exodus is about liberation, election, God's gracious presence, changing masters, worship, wilderness perseverance and entry into the promised land.
Of all the New Testament books, Revelation develops the Exodus motif the most. Exodus and Apocalypse is a message about God. An awesome God who hears, redeems, empowers and longs to be with us.
