What is God’s name? Does He even have one? Without divine communication from which God reveals Himself we are left a pantheon of surmises, guesses, and speculations on who and what God is. We are left with abstractions of “Unmoved movers” and impersonal “Forms” and spirits. Yet, the Creator has not left us in the dark. As Francis Schaeffer once put it, “God is there and is not silent.” God has spoken. God has revealed Himself in word and in deeds.
The book of Exodus introduces us to the exalted Creator-God by His personal name, Yahweh. He does so by coming down to man and intervening in space and time. The question then becomes, what happens when God draws near? When the God who dwells in inapproachable light stoops down to make His abode with sinful humanity, dramatic lines are drawn and profound revelation shows us the way to Him.
In this six week series in the book of Exodus we will encounter Yahweh as He has revealed Himself to Moses and see what is required for us to dwell in peace with God. From te plains of the Nile Delta to the wilderness of Arabia we meet God and we hear the voice of the Son, Jesus.
