|From oppression to deliverance to intimacy with God, the storyline of Exodus influences the entire Bible. In Exodus the giver of the law, Moses, anticipates the fulfiller of the law, Jesus. This book is the linchpin for the story of salvation, and the key to the Old Testament understanding of God's people and their life with him.|
