Gentlemen, a worthy accomplishment. This past week we finished learning the second book of the Bible, Exodus (Shemot in Hebrew). The main topic of the book of Exodus is the struggles of the Jewish people in Egypt, and how God freed us from Egypt and took us into the desert to receive the Torah and become His people.
You don’t have to be Jewish to benefit from the wisdom in the Bible. Come along and find out why the Bible is the bestselling book of all time, and how you can use this wisdom to improve your life today.
As we did at the end of Genesis, I want to give a little recap of the points we hit. As always, there is so much more wisdom and value in the Bible than I am able to give over in the limited time and space I have.
