Heidegger's Bible Handbook: Exodus: Historical and Doctrinal Synopsis

4. An historical synopsis of Exodus displayed in the narration of Stephen, Acts 7, and a didactic synopsis in the words of Saint Paul, Hebrews 11; Galatians 3.

In addition, the Protomartyr Stephen delivered a Historical Synopis of Exodus in his Apology, which is extant in Acts 7:17-44. Saint Paul captures the Didactic content in its principal part in Hebrews 11:23-29: By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king’s commandment. By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing Him who is invisible. Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them. By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned. Likewise, Saint Paul, Galatians 3:19, The Law was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a Mediator.
