        9:19-21)

II.     Tuesday — Exodus 1-3

1.      What is the significance of Exodus 2:23-25 especially the words “…and God remembered his covenant?”

2.     In what way can we say that this is true for us today? Did the Israelites give much evidence that they

        remembered the covenant God made with them?

3.     How should we give evidence that we are God’s Covenant people?

4.     Explain the meaning of Acts 7:35. Who was Moses a “type” of? Explain how and what the differences are.

5.     What was the name God gave to Moses for Himself and what is its meaning?

III.    Wednesday — Exodus 4-6

        Give examples of some of the excuses we make that are similar to those of Moses.

2.     Explain the ways that God used to prepare Moses for this great task that was before him. Does God ever

        call us to do something that he has not prepared us for? What are some ways that God also helps us to

        prepare for our work in fulfilling the call of God?

3.     When did God first announce the death of the firstborn and how is that significant [11:5]?

4.     In order for the Israelites to be saved from death, they had to put blood on the house in which they

        lived. Can there be salvation without the shedding of blood? (Hebrews 9)?

5.     It was important for the Israelites to remain within their house when the judgment came on the Egyptians.
