Echoes of Exodus

The following is a collection of material related to my book Echoes of Exodus: Tracing Themes of Redemption through Scripture (Crossway, 2018), co-written with Andrew Wilson. Our book is intended to provide an accessible introduction to the theme of exodus as a unifying thread in the Scripture.

The book found its beginnings in an unfinished Lenten series on the theme of exodus in the Bible. You can see the twenty-two posts in that series here.

Crossway published a post in which I outline ten things that you need to know about the exodus.

I was interviewed by the Bible Gateway blog about the book.

I delivered a talk for a friends of L’Abri group in Birmingham, Alabama expanding on these points. You can listen to that talk here:


Mere Fidelity recorded an episode on the subject of Echoes of Exodus, in which Andrew and I discuss the book. You can listen to that here:

Andrew and I were interviewed about the book on Dan Darling’s The Way Home podcast.

Josh Butler discussed the book and some of its themes with me here.


Andrew and I have both recorded videos discussing various dimensions of the significance of the Exodus for Christians today:

I delivered a talk on the subject of Exodus and New Birth here.

I spoke on the Exodus motif in Scripture here.

I discuss Exodus themes in Acts 12 here:

Andrew has written a few pieces on themes from the book for various sites:

The Hidden Symbolism You Never Saw in the Book of Ruth
The Violent Showdown: The Exodus in Isaiah
How the Exodus Connects to Baptism and the Lord’s Supper

I have also written various other posts related to the themes of Exodus. Here are a selection:

Hero’s Theme
Exodus: A Story of New Birth
Exodus in 1 Kings
The Levite, the Concubine, and Israel’s Story
Exodus Themes in Luke 9:10-50

Transfigured Hermeneutics
A Musical Case for Typological Realism
The Politics of Sacrifice
The Politics of the Memorial
Pentecost as Ecclesiology
The Red Sea Crossing and Christian Baptism

Typological themes relating to exodus commonly appear in my writing, so the above is merely a selection of posts and other writings of mine that focus more closely upon the connections.

Burl Horniachek also wrote a poem inspired by the book here.
