    Exodus as the New Birth – that was hard work in the Q&A . For example, “I hope you don’t … as a preface to a question… It’s a relief that Paul is not really making an allegorical interpretation with Sarah and Hagar, but is making a historical grammatical one…” What about application and what about application was a repeated question. There appeared to be a hint of underlying dispensationalism to some of the questions. The application, is it not, to be transformed into the likeness of Christ, as part of the Kindgom of God, as he lived in “enemy occupied territory” (CS Lewis)
    As Christian are we not to look back and forwards, to live in the present, to live forwards from our present/future resurrected and raised position in Christ, to look forwards as OT believers did, for the Messiah and the ulimate exodus, not only an exodus from, but an exodus for to be his people in his presence, a new heaven on earth?
