Exodus Proofs

Jewish Apologetics >> Torah Proofs >> Exodus Proofs

Jesus was the final Passover sacrifice without blemish (Exodus 12:5; I Peter 1:19).

Jesus was not a sheep or goat in its first year. He was a human approximately 30 years old.

Jesus was not perfect and without blemish (Matthew 27:26; Mark 15:15).

Jesus was the final Passover sacrifice that saves the world from wrath (Exodus 12:13; Romans 5:8).

The blood on the doorposts was for multiple reasons and not a repeated act. The blood on the doorposts was a sign not only to God that there were righteous Hebrews within the household but it was also a sign to the Egyptians that the Hebrews followed God and not their gods. This was a one-time event and not repeated. This is not a messianic prophecy and has nothing to do with Jesus.

Jesus was exalted as “Yeshua” (salvation) (Exodus 15:2; Acts 7:55-56).

The deliverance referenced refers to the crossing of the Yom Suf. The word yeshua (ישׁוּעָה) is from the root word yasha (יָשַׁע) which means to be liberated, to be saved, or to be delivered. Looking at this verse in context, we see that it is part of the “Song by the Sea” which was sung my Moshe and the Hebrews immediately after crossing the Yom Suf. If you read the verse, you notice that in this case “yeshua” is referring to the deliverance of the Hebrews from the Egyptians. It is not used as a name of God.

Jesus had the character of holiness (Exodus 15:11; Luke 1:35; Acts 4:27).

The praise is for God who just saved the Hebrews from the Egyptians at the Yom Suf. The word used for “holiness” is kodesh (קֹדֶשׁ) which is from the root word kadash (קָדַשׁ) which means to be separated. In this context, it is clear that God is being praised because He is above and separated from His creation. Looking at this verse in context, we see that it is part of the “Song by the Sea” which was sung my Moshe and the Hebrews immediately after crossing the Yom Suf. They were praising God for His deliverance of them from the Egyptians.

Jesus was the Rock of Israel (Exodus 17:6; I Corinthians 10:4).

The verse in Exodus is referring to the physical rock in Horeb that Moses struck upon God’s command to release the water. If you look at the very next verse (Exodus 17:7) you see that this is talking about a literal rock.

Jesus had the character of mercy (Exodus 33:19; Luke 1:72).

If you read the verse in Luke in context you see that the verse is actually referring to the mercy of God that was promised to the forefathers. It is not calling the infant Jesus merciful.

Many people were called merciful – not just Jesus (Psalm 103:13; Isaiah 49:15).
