The Exodus Motif in Revelation
Revelation chapter 11:8 speaks particularly of Jerusalem, i.e. the city which is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. This is a clear reference to the Exodus motif and the bondage of Egypt. It alludes to Paul’s reference in Galatians 4:21-31 where Paul speaks of the two covenant mothers, Hagar, the Egyptian and Sarah, the freewoman.
This is a very critical study and helps to not only understand the message of Revelation but the entirety of New Testament. Allusions to Deuteronomy 32 find a particular prominence in the book of Revelation. Please let us know if you enjoy having these podcasts available in iTunes.
A question we pursue is why God used the terms Sodom and Egypt to describe Jerusalem? Also why does The Holy Spirit use the term Egypt to describe Babylon? The word Egypt suggested ideas and concepts to the Jewish mind that Rome did not.
Get the answers to why Rome was called Babylon and why it does not meet the weighty evidence presented for Jerusalem.
