E: The Exodus was national and therefore limited. / G: The Gospel is universal and available to the "whosoever".

What is the meaning of Salvation in the exodus and how is that reflected in salvation today?

Again, notice that the Israelites only stood firm and followed God’s instructions. They did not “do” anything to save themselves. The plagues, the exodus, and the Red Sea crossing did not require their initiative or even the faith of the people. This was God’s deliverance. However, when it came time to exercise faith (trust) in the God who delivered them, they miserably failed. The plagues, the exodus, and the Red Sea crossing became God’s offer of salvation to the Israelites. These three things could only be done by God. In the same way we believe that there were certain things that only God could do to offer salvation to us under the New Covenant.

Doctrine 6: We believe that the Lord Jesus Crhist has by His suffering and death made an atonement for the whole world so that whosoever will may be saved.
However, we play a part in our salvation as well
Doctrine 7: We believe that repentance towards god, faith in our Lord Jesus christ, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit, are necessary to salvation.

Be ready to discuss in detail what was God’s role in saving the Israelites and what was their role. Also, what was God’s role in saving us today and what is our role.

Name the 3-fold Nature of the Law. (CRITICAL THINKING QUESTION)

1) The 10 Commandments (THE MORAL Code)
[and the expansion on them governed their personal lives, as they related to God and their fellow man.

It’s great objective was to:
-Produce righteous character
-Expose and identify sin
-To reveal Divine holiness]

2) The Judgments (THE SOCIAL Code)
[governed their daily social life which reflected the principles behind the commandments. It includes rules for diet, sanitation, quarantine, soil conversation, taxation, military service, marriage divorce, etc. (Exodus 21-23; All of Leviticus) ]

3) The Tabernacle (THE SPIRITUAL Code)
[was the prescribed manner of worship (The Tabernacle with its Priesthood and sacrifices) governed their religious lives so that the people would know how to approach God on the terms that He dictated (25-31). All of which are a foreshadowing of Christ and His salvation (See Hebrews 10:1). It includes the seven Levitical feasts, the five Levitical offerings, etc. (Exodus 35-40 and the book of Leviticus). The realization of all of this is in Christ. (Matt. 5:17-18; Rom. 10:4 Cor. 5:7)]

Be ready to discuss the significance, for us under the New Covenant, of the Moral Code, the Social Code, and the Spiritual Code of Exodus. Discuss each category separately and what, if anything, we can learn from these categories, and if its laws are still required from us today.
