We’ve enjoyed reading together in the prior weeks, and hope that you have as well. Reading Scripture as a family cements your faith and deepens your relationship with God. As Dan mentioned on Sunday, Exodus 2 and the beginning of Exodus 3 cover a span of 80 years (Acts 7:23, 30)!

The Hebrews have been in bondage to the Egyptians for over 400 years by the end of chapter 3. Moses has spent the past 40 years laboring under his father-in-law Jethro until he is met by an angel of the Lord in the form of an inextinguishable bush. 

 

Read Exodus 3:1-15. As you read, please consider these questions:

  1. What specifically makes the ground holy in verse 5? How do you define reverence for yourself? Does reverence play a role in your worship?
  2. Focus on the personal nature of God’s words in verses 7-10. God see’s the Hebrews affliction and is going to act in accordance with His will. How do you see God’s affection, foresight, protection, guidance and blessing in this passage?
  3. Define “I AM WHO I AM.” Looking at Hebrews 13:8 may help.
