The inspiring account of God’s deliverance of his people from bondage in Egypt has inspired dozens of documentary and feature films. But all drew their inspiration from the biblical account in the Book of Exodus.
Join Carroll Fellow Dr. Joseph Cathey, associate professor of biblical languages and literature, for an in-depth examination of the message of Exodus. Learn about the text’s distinctive background and history, its distinctive literary traits, its theological framework, and its polemic against the false gods worshiped by the Egyptians and Canaanites.
Special attention will be given to indispensable role of biblical truth for faith and ministry, communication of the message of the gospel through the text, and how the text can shape the preaching, teaching, and witness of ministers and lay leaders.
