Abstract

Preaching Exodus requires attention to its literary shape and texture and to its theological aims. The book’s integration of narrative, poetry, law, and cultic architectural description creates an imagined world into which the preacher seeks to draw an audience so they may experience afresh the God who called slaves from Egypt and continues to act as liberator. Exodus stands on its own within the Christian canon as a witness to the paradigmatic behaviors of God, and the preacher will seek both to elucidate the book on its own terms and to connect it to the rest of the Christian story.
