DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:

OPEN

  • Have a group member read Exodus 2:23-25 aloud.

  • How would you describe the tone of this passage?

REFLECT

  • Why does the text mention that the king of Egypt died? Think back to why Moses is not currently in Egypt (2:15). How might this detail affect the storyline?

  • Have a group member read Genesis 17:1-6. Why do you think God’s covenant is mentioned at this point in the Exodus narrative?

  • How does the description of God in 2:24-25 place Him in stark contrast to the gods of wood and stone worshiped by the Egyptians?

APPLY

  • The original readers of Exodus were the generation of Israelites about to enter the Promised Land after 40 years of wandering. How would the words of 2:24-25 been a comfort to them? How should they comfort us?

  • In the midst of their suffering, how aware do you think the Israelites were that God heard, remembered, saw and knew? Why is it good for us to meditate on these truths in both good times and bad?
