            ***Remember to mark in your Bibles or somewhere every time Moses asks Pharaoh to let the people go. We will discuss the meaning of this later on. ***

v Exodus 6
o   Chapter 6 is jammed pack with insight and God’s direct hand upon His people.  As we study this chapter we will focus on the following 5 things.
§  1. God’s Response
§  2. God’s plan
§  3. The people’s response
§  4. God’s Command and Moses’ response
§  5. Moses and Aaron’s credentials

v 1. God’s Response
o   Exodus 6:1-5
§  In order to get the full context of chapter 6 you will need to refer back to Exodus 5:22-23.
·      What was Moses’ reaction when the people turned on him?

·      How did God respond to Moses in Exodus 6:1?

·      What point was God establishing up front?

§  What point is the Lord trying to make, by reminding Moses who He is?

·      Why do we need to be reminded of who God is?

·      In what ways does the Lord remind you who He is and what He has done?

§  Read Genesis 17:1; Psalm 83:18; Isaiah 52:6
·      What does each of these passages have in common?

·      What insight do you get from these passages regarding who God is and the power of His name?

v 2. God’s Plan
o   Exodus 6:6-8
o   According to verses 6-8 what does God promise to do?

§  How does He do it according to verse 6?

o   What did the Lord tell Moses to say to the children of Israel?

o   What do you learn about God’s character in verses 6-8?

o   How does God fulfill His promises to you today?

o   How has God rescued you?

v 3.  The People’s Response
o   Exodus 6:9
§  What was the Israelites response to Moses?

·      Why?

§  Has there ever been a time in your life when your discouragement and burden was so great you didn’t want to listen to God or others?

§  Like most mortals, the Israelites focused on their suffering rather than on God and His deliverance. When suffering comes, keep your eyes on Christ and cling to His promises.
·      Read Proverbs 4:20-27-How can this verse be useful for us today?

v 4.  God’s Command and Moses’ Response
o   Exodus 6:10-13
§  What did the Lord tell Moses to tell Pharaoh?

§  How did Moses respond in verse 12?

§  What excuse did Moses have in the latter part of 12?

·      I can only imagine how Moses must have felt when his people turned their backs on him. Yet how often have we turned on Christ? Just not wanting to listen because our discouragement and suffering is too great.

·      Who faced similar situations like this in the New Testament? Read Galatians 1:6-10

o   What was Paul’s response to those who were turning their backs on Christ?

v 5. Moses and Aaron’s Credentials
o   Exodus 6:14-30
§  Why were genealogies so important back then?

·      What did they establish?

§  Which son of Levi was Moses a descendant?

§  Why is it necessary for us today, to be aware of these genealogies?

§  If you were to look at your family tree, at what point did Christ become the center?

o   What is the meaning behind verses 28-30?


1.     Re-read Exodus 6:9 Can you describe a time you’ve been guilty of the same thing? A time when you’ve let your present reality dictate what you think God can and cannot do?

2.     Why do you think in spite of all God’s promises, you still doubt?

3.     What is the main root of your doubt?

A.    What one promise can you cling to, that will help you overcome that doubt? Write out that promise and memorize it!!

        4.   What can we learn from rejection, discouragement, and doubt? How can we grow from them?
