Bible Time Period: Egypt and Exodus
You freed your people from slavery in Egypt so they could worship you: Free me from sin so I can serve and worship.
Exodus 21-23 is “the Book of the Covenant” – a list of rules and regulations that apply the basic laws found in the Ten Commandments to everyday situations that Israel will face as a nation. Chapter 23 emphasizes the importance of worshiping God alone, keeping prescribed feasts, and obeying and serving God. There’s no need to linger in these chapters – get the general overview, and save a closer look for later study.
