I Will Reveal, Rescue, Redeem

God sets his people free. Here freedom from slavery is introduced as an ideal of the people of God. Later on we see that this is freedom from sin and death. This New Testament theme is clearly foreshadowed in the Passover event and subsequent celebrations of the event. The Passover Lamb and the spilling of blood to cause the Angel of Death to “Passover” are all themes picked up in the New Testament. Jesus is the “lamb of God”.

Scripture Reference: Exodus 6: 6-12, Exodus 12: 21-28
