Lent begins with Ash Wednesday and so does the emphasis of this sermon series on Moses’s book called Exodus. God’s salvation of the ancient Israelites from slavery in Egypt is so amazing that the event becomes the Gospel of the Old Testament. Israel’s Scriptures mention the exodus 125 times!
Throughout Exodus, God reveals who he is through his absence and his presence, through silence and speech, through wrath and mercy, and through his judgment and his amazing grace. In doing so, the book paints a beautiful portrait of Jesus, especially as we follow him along the way to Golgotha and the empty tomb.
Written by noted preacher and biblical scholar Dr. R. Reed Lessing, “Let My People Go!” includes:
- Full sermon manuscripts geared for midweek services but suitable for Sunday worship
- Full liturgies for each week in Lent
- A comprehensive study of Exodus for developing a Bible class
- Information for ordering a PDF devotional booklet for use in a congregation (separate one-time $12 fee)
Sermons include Ash Wednesday, the weeks of Lent, Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter. Dr. Lessing currently serves as the senior pastor of St. Michael Lutheran Church, Fort Wayne, Indiana, and is the author of numerous books and articles, including several biblical commentaries. He previously served as professor of exegetical theology at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.
