The Mission and Ascension; Learning Under Jesus

One day, after spending about 40 days with Jesus, we were eating with him. While he was eating with us, he gave us this command: "Do not leave Jerusalem but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit." Matthew asked him, "Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?" Jesus said, "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."

Battle of the Gods

Exodus is an action-packed book, especially at the beginning. It's also profound, and at times confusing. For an idea of how deep, listen to Michael Heiser's The Naked Bible podcast. He went through the entire book, and I understood maybe half of it.  Here are some of my thoughts on it so far. To set the stage, think of it as a battle of the gods, and I'm not talking about the DragonBall Super movie though Beerus does look Egyptian.
