Elevations on the Law and Prophecies that heralded the Liberator and prepare for him the way

This series takes us literally out of Egypt and into the promised land with the following topics:

  1. The Captive People: Moses is shown to them as their deliverer
  2. Two ways in which Moses is shown to the people
  3. Moses, figure of the divinity of Jesus Christ
  4. The Passover and the deliverance of the people
  5. The Red Sea
  6. The desert
  7. The Law on Mount Sinai
  8. The Ark of the Covenant
  9. The Bloody Sacrifices and the Blood used everywhere
  10. The Camp and the Fatherland

In some ways this is one of the most interesting elevations, because Bossuet clearly relates the figures/types in the Old Law and the history of the Israelites to the events of the New Testament in a way that, in our current rush to hyperliteralism, has been lost.
