Lesson 3: The Gospel and the Exodus (Exodus 12:1-13)

Western culture today tends to prefer thinking as little about death as possible. The picture of a father in a home killing a young sheep and smearing its blood on the frame of the front door is disturbing—the idea of every family in a city of over a million people doing so is unthinkable. The image is gruesome, but this is the exact task the people of Israel had before them. And the image would serve as a foreshadowing of an even greater blood sacrifice that would one day take place. Pastor Daniel highlights the powerful message contained in Exodus 12 by stating, “Jesus Christ is the spotless lamb of God who is sacrificed to take away the sins of the world. It is a beautiful and violent image that will change your life.”
