Bible Study: Coming Out Of Bondage - Exodus - Chapter 6

Please forgive this rough draft format, as these are my raw study notes on the book of Exodus. I felt a great sense of urgency to publish them rather than waiting until I had the time to pretty them up. Thank you and I pray that God blesses you through this material.


Take a few minutes to savor Exodus Chapter 6. Then return here and ponder the thoughts, answer the questions, and be sure to leave comments about your own revelations…

6:1 – God’s mighty hand is nail-scarred.

6:6-8 – the 7 “I will” statements. This is God’s promise to deliver Israel. This is a picture of Christ.

6:6 – outstretched arm – Jesus’ arms were stretched out on the cross to redeem us.

6:12 – “I speak with faltering lips” – is this a dig against God? Is Moses complaining that following God’s instruction in 3:18 resulted in increased suffering? Or is this a reiteration of Moses’ objection about not being eloquent in 4:10?

6:14-25 – Why include only the genealogies of Reuben, Simeon and Levi? These are Jacob’s first three sons…and the deliverers are from Levi’s family…

6:28-30 – Moses brings up his eloquence issue again. See 4:10.

What attributes of God have you observed in your study today? How will this change your relationship with Him?
