Pharaoh. Plagues. The power of God. A people for God’s possession. The Book of Exodus is a story of rescue. It is a story of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob intervening for His people, bringing them through chaotic waters, and establishing them as a distinct nation. It is also a story presenting God’s relationship with a human representative. This connection is so close that at times the reader is left wondering where God ends and His representative begins. If one watches the story closely, we see the journey of a man taking up the mantle of His God for his people, and through this relationship becomes an agent of His glory, standing against oppressive powers both on earth and in heaven.
