4. Guidance – Pillar of fire and cloud
5. Provision – Manna
6. Faithfulness – God honors covenant with Abraham
7. Love – God coming to man for relationship


II. The Gospel: A Marvel of…
1. Judgment – God’s wrath poured out on Jesus for sin, overthrow of Satan.
2. Grace – Blood bought people, saved from death and the wrath of God.
3. Might – The resurrection of the Son of God “opening the way” to ultimate freedom.
4. Guidance – The 3rd person of the trinity and the Bible as the new pillar of cloud and fire.
5. Provision – Bread of life without end.
6. Faithfulness – The new covenant as promised in Jeremiah 31.
7. Love – God becoming man so man can become like God.

The precious blood of the God-man saves.• One lamb, once and for all (Gospel)

In Effect • Exodus was for a nation people (Exodus)

Gospel is for all humans (Gospel)


In Extent • Temporal • Opened up the way to Canaan.(Exodus)

• Eternal • Opened up a way to new heavens and a new earth. (Gospel)
