Dr. John Saleska takes you in-depth into the conditions and situation around the ten plagues visited upon Egypt as the Exodus takes place. Today’s podcast deals with the ninth plague – Darkness.
Dr. Saleska explains the significance of the “Name” of God and how that plays into Pharaoh’s refusal to let the people go. Also, please note there was an error in posting Podcast 73, and that has now been corrected. If you noticed that 73 was a repeat of 72, you were correct. That has now been updated so that you have Exodus Chapters 8 and 9 for your listening pleasure.
Exodus 8 describes the continuing battle between God and Pharaoh, with Moses as the go-between. Join Dr. Saleska as he shares insights regarding the next set of disasters to befall the Egyptians.
Dr. Saleska engages in a spirited discussion over the significance of the “Name of the Lord.” The confrontation between Pharaoh and Moses begins in earnest in Exodus 7.
Of what significance is the name of God? Why does Moses continue to question is own ability as God’s chosen instrument to lead the people out of Egypt? These and other questions are explored by Dr. Saleska as Exodus 6 is studied in-depth in the “Christ in Every Word” podcast.
Dr. Saleska discusses the passage concerning the “hardening” of Pharaoh’s heart, and the conversation (or should we say contest) between Moses and Pharaoh.
Dr. Saleska guides us through Exodus Chapter 4 in which Moses does his level best to avoid the task assigned to him by the Lord. Finally, however, after every excuse is rendered moot, Moses is on his way to set the people free.
Moses must leave Egypt because he’s become a murderer. What is going to become of him as he escapes to the desert? God has something in mind, as Dr. John Saleska explains.
Dr. Saleska describes the birth of Moses and his dramatic escape from the king who wants to destroy him, and draws the parallel with the birth of Jesus Christ, who also had a king who sought the destruction of the infant.
Dr. Saleska introduces the strong connection between the events contained in Exodus to the rest of the Old Testament. Listen as he explains the consistent witness of the Old Testament to the Mosaic authorship of the first five books of the Bible.
