Zac Poonen – Bible Teacher
We are going to begin now. Let’s turn to Exodus in chapter 1.
If Genesis, we could say, is the book of beginnings, we could title Exodus as a nation is born. The birth of the Israeli nation as a nation, the beginnings we saw in Genesis, and now we find them becoming a full-fledged nation.
And in the first 15 chapters, we read of their slavery in Egypt and their deliverance, or we could call it Redemption from Egypt. And the rest of the chapter deals with their time in the wilderness and God’s giving them His plan for building the tabernacle. So let’s look at this.
In the beginning, we read of how Pharaoh was disturbed, the Israelites even though they were slaves, they were becoming more numerous and more powerful numerically, and he was afraid that these men would finally stop working for him and overthrow his government. So he decided on a scheme to kill all the male children. Now that was a scheme of the devil.
