Exodus: God’s Kingdom of Priests (Focus on the Bible) by Allan Harman
Exodus is the story of the first redemption of God’s people for Himself. Starting with a people enslaved and oppressed, seemingly forgotten by their God, it culminates with the Tabernacle. God had chosen His people, setting them apart from the other nations: His kingdom of priests. Exodus forms the sub-structure of the Old Testament – and points at every stage to the coming Messiah of the New Testament.
Allan Harman draws on a lifetime of teaching and preaching the Old Testament in this commentary. With careful attention to the Hebrew text of Exodus, he brings out nuances that otherwise might be missed, and shows the connections with other parts of Scripture to underscore the foundational character of this book for the faith of the people of God.
