Few stories in the Bible are as important to understanding the rest of Scripture as the Exodus. Throughout the Old Testament and beyond, this event came to define the nature of salvation. It was paradigmatic. Thus, in order to understand Scripture on its own terms, one must understand the Exodus. How Scripture speaks about and alludes to the Exodus events also teaches us how to read Scripture well. In his significant new book, Echoes of Exodus: Tracing a Biblical Motif (Downers Grove, IVP, 2018) Bryan Estelle describes the Exodus as a “meganarrative” in Scripture and traces it through the three parts of the Old Testament: the law, the prophets, and the writings. He follows the threads, echoes, and allusions of the Exodus through the gospels, Acts, Paul epistles, Peter epistles, and the Revelation.
