1. The purpose of the Bible is the glory of God and the salvation of man through Jesus Christ our Lord. Genesis connects with the purpose line in that (1) it reaches backward to revelation and makes known the origin of the universe, of man, and of sin; (2) it unfolds the development of the messianic nation; (3) it looks into the future and foretells that coming of promised seed, the Savior-Shiloh.

2. The book of Exodus deals with the birth and organization of the nation through whom the promised Messiah would come. Exodus is a Greek word meaning way out, or departure.

3. The outstanding character in the book is Moses - "for forty years he thought he was somebody; spent forty years learning he was nobody; and then discovered for forty years what God can do with nobody."

4. Redemption is the key word of the book and the theme is redemption through the blood.

5. The key text of the book would probably be Exod 19:4-6, 20:2.
