Survey of Exodus 14-18

The Jesus Christ of Old Testament History

Learner objectives: (1) To be able to describe the flight from Egypt including the crossing of the Reed Sea. (2) To be able to describe God's assistance to us today as we try to flee from a wilderness of sin in our present world.

Narrative: This is more than a story of a group of people fleeing from subjugation; it is an allegory for us as we strive to live "soberly, righteously, and Godly in this present age."

Time: 1445 B. C.

The Bible Story:

Leaving Egypt (Exodus 13: 17-14:31 . God did not lead the people near the Philistines. There are times today when God does not lead us near Philistia. He will not lead us into temptation. James 1: 12-16; Matthew 6: 13 . God will not allow us to be tempted beyond what we are able to bear. I Corinthians 10: 13.

The deliverance from Pharoah

The drowning of Pharoah's Army (14: 1-31).

So God will fight for us if we will be faithful and trust in Him.

Have you ever noticed that Most of the time, the threats of lLife simply melt away when we put our confidence in the Lord?
