Exodus - From Slavery to Divine Service

From August 29 - September 2, 2011, Dr Kleinig delivered these talks at Mount Zion Lutheran Church, Castle Rock.

In Exodus God institutes the divine service for the Israelites at the tabernacle and establishes them as His holy people, a unique liturgical community dependent on Him for its existence.

In fact, He had rescued them from slavery Pharaoh and the Egyptian gods so that He could be their God, dwell in their midst and meet with them daily in the divine service to bless them and share His holiness with them.

This course will examine the book of Exodus as a founding story for Israel and discuss its relevance for the theology and performance of the divine service in the Lutheran church.
