Sermon Discussion Questions for Exodus 12:37 – 13:22
1. We have spent the last two weeks looking at how the Passover lamb has many similarities to Jesus. List as many as you can think of.
2. Moses told the children of Israel that they were to keep the Passover feast each year in order to demonstrate to their children what God had done for them. In what ways are you demonstrating your love for God and what He did for you so that it is evident to those around you?
3. God did not take the Israelites out of Egypt the quickest or shortest way but chose a longer path in order to instruct them. What are some ways God has changed the route of your life as you have walked with him and what has it taught you?
4. God provided for the Israelites’ journey before they left, in an unexpected way (the gold and silver from the Egyptians). How and what has God provided for you lately in an unexpected way?
5. The first stop on their exodus was Succoth (shelter). How has the Lord brought you to shelter in the last few weeks?
6. At least three times in the scriptures we read that the Israelites were taken out of Egypt by God’s strong hand. In what areas of your life do you rest in the strong hand of God and what areas do your arm wrestle with God for control?
7. Reread Exodus 13:11-13. How are you like a donkey?
8. In Exodus 13:9 it says: “It shall be as a sign to you on your hand and as a memorial between your eyes, that the Lord’s law may be in your mouth; for with a strong hand the Lord has brought you out of Egypt.” In your own words, explain what you think this means.
9. If we believe that God knows the right way to go then why do we still question His direction?
10. God lead them by day with a column of cloud and by night with a column of fire. How does God choose to lead you?
