Exodus is a story about liberation. It’s about being freed from oppression. It’s about being freed from darkness. But it’s also about being freed to something – or better yet, about being saved by someone, to someone. Exodus is about leaving darkness, sin and death and getting God.
And the best part? God’s the one who does the liberation. He goes to save his people, he defeats their enemies, and he leads them out into the bright light of his presence, to be his treasured possession, to be God’s family.
It’s the same thing God does for us in the Gospel. Jesus came to save us from our sin and darkness, from the oppression of life apart from God. He came to defeat our demons and lead us into God’s presence, to be God’s family.
In the book of Exodus, we see the Gospel in vivid stories. We see people that are exactly like us. We see a God that is not what we expect. We find a God who liberates us from darkness, to enjoy himself. We find the Gospel According to Moses.
