Israel’s Exodus from Egypt formed the prototype for how God s rescues his people. In Jesus’ last days, he teaches his disciples a prayer that urges God to bring a New Exodus, a bigger rescue from the deeper powers of sin and death.
Today we dive into the second half of the Lord’s prayer and show how each line connects back to the Exodus story.
Give us today our daily bread
Forgive us our sins,
for we also forgive everyone indebted to us.
Don’t bring us to the time of trial.
