Exodus, Vol. 1 (Evangelical Press Study Commentary)
John D. Currid
This volume, in the EP Study Commentary series, covers the first eighteen chapters of Exodus: the deliverance of the children of Israel from Egypt to their arrival at Sinai. This commentary provides insights into the book of Exodus, but also clear and concise application. It is a book for everyone who wants to understand better what God says to us in this portion of his Word. The author writes, ‘It is my hope that pastors will use it for sermon preparation, and others for Bible study preparation and personal study.’
Dr Currid provides solid exegesis in an accessible way matched with practical application that displays the relevance of this Old Testament book for the twenty-first century. The period covered tells the account of the deliverance of the children of Israel from Egypt to their arrival at Sinai. It is the story of the persecution of God’s people, their release from the domination of Pharaoh's Egypt to the crossing of the Red Sea. Central to this narrative is the birth, life and ministry of Moses.
