The word 'exodus' means 'a going out' and the first
part of the book of Exodus records how God provided
'a way out' of Egypt and slavery for His people, the
God chose Moses to be their leader and, after 10 mighty
plagues against the Egyptians and their gods, God took
them out of Egypt and across the Red Sea into the wilderness
on their way to the Promised Land.
The rest of the book of Exodus records the journeying
of the Israelites through the wilderness and how God
provided for them and protected them throughout the
40 years of their wanderings.
