Bible Study: Coming Out Of Bondage - Exodus - Chapter 22

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 22. Then return here and ponder the thoughts, answer the questions, and be sure to leave comments about your own revelations…

22:2-3 – Why does daylight make a difference? Perhaps because you should be able to identify and reason with a person you can see? And a thief would be less apt to behave in such a way in the daytime?

22:4 – pay back double – definitely an attempt to deter the offense since many who steal have nothing with which to make restitution.

22:7 – pay back double – see 22:4.

22:18 – sorcery is a capital offense.

22:19 – bestiality is a capital offense.

22:20 – worshiping other gods is a capital offense.

22:21-24 – mistreating widows and orphans is a capital offense.

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