Exodus is the book of redemption, describing the servitude of the people, the interest of God in their sufferings and groaning, the work of God in bringing about their deliverance, and the great truth of salvation effected by blood. But the narrative does not end there! Deliverance from the penalty of sin has been brought about, but at the Red Sea there is deliverance from the power of Egypt, a symbol of the power of sin. Israel travel into the wilderness where lessons have to be learned in the school of God. Such an account cannot fail to grip the heart of all Christians who have a desire to get to know God in a closer way.
