Feature Highlight: Notes on Exodus

Back in December of 2015, I decided to begin a study on Exodus. What came of it was a completion of my already existing notes for that book.

Years ago, I had taught a Sunday school class on Exodus. I was only able to complete the first twenty chapters. I had a healthy set of notes for those chapters, and up until just recently, they were only stored in a folder on my Google Drive. I now had good reason to put them to use, which I had wanted to do ever since I taught that class.

As soon as I began my recent study of Exodus, I immediately knew what to do with my notes, and that is, publish them on the RCV site. After spending 57 days studying Exodus, I have my study notes on each page of each chapter of exodus—all 40 chapters.

As with every other feature I add to the RCV site, I hope it will be profitable for the reader. The book of Exodus is a very important book and has been said to be the Old Testament book with the most references to Christ[1]; moreover, it contains the Ten Commandments. This book begins the law, which "was our school-master to bring us to Christ, so that we might be justified by faith" (Galatians 3:24).

So, if you're interested, head on over to Exodus and check out the notes.
