Exodus (Program #1) – An Introductory Word

The divine revelation in the Scriptures is progressive unfolding and developing book by book and chapter by chapter.  The 66 books of the Bible were written over a period of 1600 years.  During this long period, God did not speak once for all at one specific time rather He spoke to His people progressive, time after time over a long period.   So begin the life study of Exodus.  For the next several months we will explore this classic book of the Old Testament through rich spiritual insight of Witness Lee.

We were in the life study of Genesis, Exodus in a sense continues that book.  The book of Genesis principally issues in the life of 3 people; Abraham, Issac and Jacob, which is really a complete picture of the called one of God.  In Abraham you see God’s calling and fellowship and living by faith with God.  In Issac you see the aspect of enjoying God’s riches and inheriting the rich inheritance that God has for us.  And in Jacob, you see God’s transforming work to produce a prince, from Jacob to Israel. That is extended by Joseph, one of his sons was brought into Egypt.  Then eventually all of the family is brought there.  So Genesis ends this 3 or 4-part presentation of the believers’ experience with Jacob dying and being buried in Egypt.  But with a promise that God would visit them that they will be brought out at a later date.  Exodus picks up from there.
