Moses, Idolatry, and Interior Slavery

Week five of our series on salvation history is here. And Moses is our man. I say Moses, you say? Ten Commandments. Ten plagues of Egypt. The golden calf. Parting of the Red Sea. Wandering in the wilderness for 40 years. What do all these pieces of his story have to do with the covenant God made through him? What was the covenant even about? Find out today with Richaél Lucero. Plus! Learn why the freed Hebrew slaves of Egypt weren’t actually free. And how that damaged the covenant.

Throughout the series Richaél Lucero will examine one of the six key figures, the covenant they made with God and its meaning.
