The book of Exodus describes the miraculous escape of the Israelites from slavery in the land of Egypt. Through a series of plagues and judgments brought about by God at the hand of Moses, Pharaoh and his country are slowly forced to accept God's sovreignety. Once they have left Egypt and passed through the Red Sea, Moses leads the people through the wilderness to Mount Sinai. There, God makes a special covenant with them - their new constitution as His people (rather than the slaves of Pharaoh). This arrangement requires a code of behaviour on their part, however, as well as the construction of a special building - the Tabernacle - in which God's continuing presence with His people would be enshrined. Many of these themes - the ideas of covenant, salvation through water, the king-tyrant (representing the power of sin and death) and the principle of God dwelling with His people - become key themes extending through the rest of the Bible and into the New Testament.
