Explaining what the Bible teaches is like giving someone a fish to eat. Teaching how to study the Bible is like teaching someone how to fish so they can feed themselves. Both approaches are essential to developing spiritual maturity.Exodus is the second volume in the Heavenly Citizens series and contains 774 pages. In this book Moses made his first appearance in history and went from rags to riches before he was a year old! (He sure beats Bill Gates, huh?) He spent forty years in the royal palace as kin to Pharaoh, but threw it all away by taking the side of the Hebrew slaves and their God Yahweh...which effectively reversed his worldly position from riches to rags!Moses spent the next forty years on the back side of the desert, before the Lord called him to lead the Hebrews out of Egypt and into the Promised Land. The Book of Exodus records Israels deliverance out of Egypt and their march to Mt. Sinai, where the Lord gave them the Law to govern them in the Promised Land and the tabernacle worship setup as their means to have a relationship with Him.We have the pleasure to learn what the Law of Moses meant to the Israelites (the context). From that context we draw principles behind the Law, and then we apply those principles to Christian living today. That is the approach for Exodus and for every volume in the Heavenly Citizens series. We teach the student the meaning of Scripture and we teach him or her how to study the Bible on his/her own. We do this in two ways: we provide a few rules by which to govern our Bible study, and we demonstrate by example how to study the Bible. Experience is an outstanding teacher. We practice in our books the rules for Bible study. By walking through the Bible with us, the reader experiences firsthand what our method of study is like.We believe the student will come out of our studies with both an understanding of the Bible and the ability to truthfully intelligently study the Bible on his/her own. The path lies before you. Walk through the gate and join the journey with us! And may the blessings of the Lord Jesus Christ be yours in abundance.
