Exodus: a mass departure of people.  That’s what the book of exodus describes: a people departing the bonds of slavery, bound for the land God promised.  The story has become a template for what Jesus does in the lives of all those who want to enter the Kingdom of God.  Jesus calls them out of the world and into life in his kingdom, with his people, the church.  For us to live in his kingdom we must get ready to join the exodus out of the kingdom of this world into the kingdom of light.
