The exodus of the people of Israel from Egypt is one of the most important events in the Bible, but the whole Bible is a book of many exoduses hiding in plain sight. To see this, we must approach the Bible more like a great piece of music than an instruction manual.
In this stimulating lecture, Alastair Roberts presents "a musical reading of scripture" with the exodus as the Bible's primary musical theme, often subtly stated but many times bold and unmissable. This talk will help open your ears and imagination to the rich, beautiful, and unexpected harmonies of the Bible. It will also give you a greater appreciation for the work of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection is the most glorious crescendo of scripture's music and the greatest exodus of all—both for him and for all who trust in him.
