Background Notes

Doctrinal Point(s)

  1. God revealed Himself as LORD to His people in the Exodus.
  2. God revealed Himself as Redeemer to His people in the Exodus.

Practical Application

  1. Let’s experience God’s outstretched arm and uplifted hand.


  1. Why is the genealogy of Moses and Aaron included here?
  2. Why is the genealogy of Moses and Aaron included here?
  3. Review the events of the two previous chapters.
  4. What name did God use for Himself with the patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob?
  5. How do we reconcile Exodus 6:3 with the accounts of the patriarchs calling God “LORD” (Yahweh)?
  6. List the seven “I wills” of Exodus 6:6-8.


  1. To show the lineage of the two prominent leaders God chose to represent His people
  2. Levi, the third son of Jacob
  3. Moses returned to Egypt, and the people were encouraged when they he told them God’s promises. But after Moses first encountered Pharaoh, the Israelites’ situation became worse. They had to produce the same quota of bricks for the Egyptians, although they were no longer supplied with straw. The Israelites responded by blaming Moses and refusing to listen to him.
  4. “God Almighty,” which in Hebrew is El Shaddai.
  5. Apparently believers before the time of Moses knew the name of the LORD, but had not experienced the full meaning of this name. Through the Exodus, the people would come to know God as a personal God who keeps His covenants with His people.
  6. 1) I will bring you out 2) I will rescue you 3) I will redeem you 4) I will take you as My people 5) I will be your God 6) I will bring you into the land 7) I will give the land to you


  1. Maybe you have known the Lord for years. Have you come to know Him as the LORD, a personal, covenant-keeping God?
  2. Review the seven “I wills” of Exodus 6:6-8. These promises show God’s great plan of redemption of the Children of Israel. But this redemption came with a cost – the life of a spotless lamb (Exodus 12). Discuss this wonderful picture of our redemption. Refer to 1 Corinthians 5:7 and 1 Peter 1:18-19.


  1. God is powerful for His people and He keeps His promises to His people. Have you experienced God’s outstretched arm and uplifted hand?
