About the Book

God placed the exodus miracle prominently throughout the pages of Scripture to remind all mankind of his loving nature. He selected Moses to free his people from slavery and to record eyewitness details of the Red Sea Crossing, positioning this miraculous event at the core of His salvation message.

The Crossing uncovers profound biblical and historical truths from the exodus that place us at the same shoreline of hope where the Hebrew nation faced what they believed was certain destruction at the hands of the Egyptian army. This event is a personal demonstration of God’s loving redemption, along with the birth, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Why does this event appear so often in Scripture? What are the lessons of the exodus that we can apply to our lives today? In answering these questions, this book places a unique focus on this decisive salvation moment. However, it was not just a salvation moment for Israel, but it was also a salvation moment for us—providing an ocean-crossing miracle for all generations to come. Although it occurred three thousand years ago, the exodus still speaks to us today. It is a story that invites us to trust God boldly and step into deep water. He can still create a new pathway on dry ground!
