Exodus and Leviticus takes a look at the history and culture of the events and people of Israel from the exodus out of Egypt to the giving of the Law and the establishment of the nation of Israel. The goals of this class are, first, to help you understand the cultural background and the literary structure of the biblical text and, thus, the purpose and message behind the text. The second goal is to unfold the major themes that are established and developed throughout the biblical text, which unfolds the story of Yahweh’s plan of redemption.

Attending Cory's Bible class was the highlight of learning for my husband and me! And we continue to discuss together and encourage friends, and even nonbelievers with all we learned about God. Cory's class gave a truly global perspective on how the entire Bible is united into one story of God’s pursuit to redeem humanity back to Himself. We are so excited that we can continue our learning through Cory's great insight and study of truth in the next study. —Les and Cathy Fischer

Words are inadequate to express how much Cory’s class has meant to me. I learned so very much and now have a new perspective on the Old Testament that I have never had before. I love his approach on how to study the Bible. I always felt so renewed and refreshed from being in his class and left always wanting more!! If he ever does another class I would love to come!! —Deb Walton

While taking the Torah class, it is the first time that I truly understood the meaning of the sacrifices that Cain and Abel made and why Cain's sacrifice wasn't seen as acceptable by God. There were many other instances of, 'Ohhh, now I get it!' over the course of the class. Stress free... fun instructor with a true heart for God who only charges for the course because he has to take time away from his precious family in order to teach it. He would do it for free and love every moment of it! —Trish Eaton

The Torah Class was incredible. It was just what I needed to really set a foundation. There is always more to learn about the Bible, but through Cory’s class I have such a better understanding of the foundation for the rest of the Bible. Cory’s teaching and how he always points to God and always points to the foreshadowing and arrival of Jesus Christ was really encouraging. I was blown away by his knowledge and it really inspired me to dig in myself to books like Leviticus and Deuteronomy. His excitement for the Bible excites me and inspires me to grow and want to learn more. —Albert Miller

This study in Exodus is the second part of a lengthier study in the Torah (first five books of the first Testament) and takes a look at the history and culture of the events and people of Israel from the exodus out of Egypt to the giving of the Law and the establishment of the nation of Israel. This study is 36 hours long (recorded in 2011). This is worth 3 Bible CEUs.

This audio is older and will be replaced by the class recording in September

One of the major focal points of Genesis was how humanity was created as the image of God (Gen. 1:26-28) but that humanity’s sin marred that image and the Kingdom of Yahweh on earth (Gen. 3). Through Yahweh’s calling of Abraham out of the fallen world, He established the promises, hope, and the foundation for the restored Kingdom of Yahweh on earth. Exodus tells of how Yahweh fulfilled His promises to Abraham (Gen. 15; 17; 22) and redeemed His people so that He could begin to restore the Kingdom of Yahweh through Abraham’s descendants. The sovereign creator of Genesis had now come to redeem and establish His nation in the book of Exodus. This is the purpose of Exodus: Yahweh’s redemption of Israel whereby He would make them into a new nation that belonged to Him and through whom He could restore His Kingdom.

Ex. 19:4-6 is the theological center for the book of Exodus. It is the link between the Abrahamic Covenant (Gen. 12:1-4; 15; 17; 22) and the Mosaic Covenant that was to follow (Ex. 20). This passage clearly states that Yahweh had delivered them from their bondage to Egypt and that their purpose was to obey and follow Him. If they did this, then He would dwell with them and bless them and use them to restore the kingdom of Yahweh on earth. Here He revealed to Israel that He had redeemed them so that they may be an example to the world and the tool that He would use to redeem the nations as well. Though Moses was chosen to deliver Israel, this is not a story about him but of Yahweh, who truly is the Hero and Deliverer of His people.

It is in the book of Exodus that Yahweh also reveals the nature of Jesus Christ and His redemption of the world through the cross. Whereas westerners think more of prophecy as direct predictions of the future, the Hebrews saw prophecy more as patterns, symbols, and typology. Exodus is full of typology, which serves as a foreshadowing of the coming of Christ and His redemption. From the burning bush, Israel’s exodus, and the wilderness journey to the pillar of fire, the Law, the tabernacle, the sacrificial system, and the festivals; they all serve as a typology of Christ. In this way Exodus has more prophecy in it than any other book in the First Testament
