Product Description

Israel’s exodus from Egypt is the archetypal anvil on which Scripture shapes the language of deliverance. More than an epic moment, the exodus is the master image that shapes the telling of Israel’s and the church’s gospel.

From the blasting furnace of Egypt, God leads Israel through the wilderness to Sinai and on to Zion. It is the story that illuminates the psalmist’s poetry and inspires Isaiah’s second-exodus rhapsodies. Exodus resonances pulse through the New Testament, from Jesus’ birth to his death, from the letters of Paul to the Apocalypse of John.

In Echoes of Exodus, Bryan Estelle traces the motif through the canon of Scripture. Wedding literary readings with biblical-theological insights, he helps us weigh again what we know and recognize anew what we have not seen. More than that, he introduces us to the study of quotation, allusion, and echo, providing a firm theoretical basis for hermeneutical practice and understanding.

Echoes of Exodus is a guide for students and biblical theologians, and a resource for preachers and teachers of the Word.

Publisher's Description

Israel’s exodus from Egypt is the Bible’s enduring emblem of deliverance. It is the archetypal anvil on which the scriptural language of deliverance is shaped. More than just an epic moment, the exodus shapes the telling of Israel’s and the church’s gospel. From the blasting furnace of Egypt, imagery pours forth. In the Song of Moses Yahweh overcomes the Egyptian army, sending them plummeting to the bottom of the sea. But the exodus motif continues as God leads Israel through the wilderness, marches to Sinai and on the Zion. It fires the psalmist’s poetry and inspires Isaiah’s second-exodus rhapsodies. As it pulses through the veins of the New Testament, the Gospel writers hear exodus resonances from Jesus’ birth to the gates of Jerusalem. Paul casts Christ’s deliverance in exodus imagery, and the Apocalypse reverberates with exodus themes. In Echoes of Exodus, Bryan Estelle traces the motif as it weaves through the canon of Scripture. Wedding literary readings with biblical-theological insights, he helps us weigh again what we know and recognize anew what we have not seen. More than that, he introduces us to the study of quotation, allusion, and echo, providing a firm theoretical basis for hermeneutical practice and understanding. Echoes of Exodus is a guide for students and biblical theologians, and a resource for preachers and teachers of the Word.
