Bible Study: Coming Out Of Bondage - Exodus - Chapter 21

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

21:1 – God gives Moses the civil code.

21:7 – A daughter would be sold to see that she is provided for. This wasn’t just a way for the father to make money. This would be done if he couldn’t afford a dowry or to give her a lifestyle above her own class.

21:2-11 – Laws regarding Hebrew servants.

21:12-32 – Personal injury laws.

21:33-22:15 – Property laws and laws regarding injury to animals.

notice that accidents and negligence require restitution only and acts of theft require restitution PLUS punitive damages.

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