Explore The Bible Study: Liberation

8:31 PM

Have you ever been to an escape room? In recent years, the escape room industry has grown exponentially. An escape room is a physical adventure game in which players are locked in a room and must solve a series of puzzles using clues and hints. There is a set time limit and most of the clues lead to specific directions that must be followed to successfully escape before time runs out. The weeks Explore the Bible study: Liberation from LifeWay, will focus on a very special and different type of escape. It is the Exodus escape – the escape of God’s people from the bondage of the Egyptians.

This is how the LOOK UP portion of this week's teaching helps begins. With the interest in escape rooms today, this should generate discussion that can lead to a strong beginning for the session. The following video is an option that could be used as a part of the introduction.


"LOOK IN" Modifications

Outline: The following outline was used to develop the discussion plans.
  1. Escaping Egypt included a New Beginning (Exodus 12:1-2)
  2. Escaping Egypt included a New Celebration (Exodus 12:3-11)
  3. Escaping Egypt included a New Identity (Exodus 12:12-13)
Cross Reference Verses: The Israelites' celebration meal takes on new meaning for us today. If we are believers, then Jesus Christ has “passed over” our sins and provided redemption. Consider assigning the following verses in advance. 

Because of the shed blood of Jesus Christ:
  • Romans 3:23-25
  • Hebrews 9:13-14
  • We are justified and redeemed – Someone read: Romans 5:8-9 and Ephesians 1:7
  • We live under a new covenant between a holy God and sinful man – Someone read: 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
  • Sinners are brought near to God – Someone read: Ephesians 2:13
  • Sinners are granted peace and reconciled with God – Someone read: Colossians 1:19-22
  • Sinners are made clean before God – Someone read: Hebrews 13:12
Additional verses referenced that celebrate the identity we have in Christ.
  • 1 Peter 1:1-25
  • 1 Chronicles 16:23
  • Psalm 96:2
  • Revelation 7:9-10
We should be ready daily to celebrate the new life we have been given through Jesus Christ! Look for ways to celebrate this week. Consider what you need to do to be identified as a follower of Christ.
