The Book of Exodus Bible Study Groups

The Book of Exodus is an amazing story of miracles featuring a fire and mountain of God, a story of flight and divine encounter. Led by Moses, the Israelites flee slavery in Egypt and prepare to enter the Promised Land in a journey which should take 40 years to complete.

There is no doubt that Exodus is one of the most influential books in the Bible. But did the Exodus really happen? And who was Moses? And why is Exodus' spiritual teaching so important for Jews and Christians alike?

Join us for a summer study course on this foundational book in the Bible. Explore the history and reception of this piece of writing, from the Baby in the Basket to the Burning Bush and from the 10 Plagues to the 10 Commandments.

Two courses will run in parallel, please sign up for either:

Wednesdays 11, 18 and 25 July at 10.30 am at the Rectory, or
Thursdays 12, 19 and 26 July at 7.30 pm in the Church Hall
