The book gets its name from God (through Moses) « bringing out » his people from Egypt. God then assembles his people and gives them his law, which is a reflection of his character. God’s law is meant to point people to the Messiah.
The third book of the Bible. This book gets its name from the family of Levi, one of the 12 sons of Jacob, whom God chose to serve as priests and to help the people to worship God. One of the jobs of the priests was to offer sacrifices to God, which would allow sinful humans to come near to a holy God.
