Genesis opened with God creating man in paradise and closed with a man in a coffin down in Egypt (Gen 50:26). The problem is SIN (Gen 3). In Genesis God made a wonderful covenant with Abraham, but the book closes with the children of Israel down in Egypt. The Israelites are in Egypt for 400 years and become a people numbering in the millions. Exodus opens with the children of Israel in bondage. The book of Exodus is about God redeeming them out of Egypt by blood and power in order to bring them unto Himself and into the land of promise to serve Him. It was a dress rehearsal for a greater Exodus to come during the tribulation period. This book covers the exodus from Egypt, the giving of the Law, and the tabernacle.
