Exodus: Perfect Substitute

As God’s people rebelled by worshiping a golden calf, God invites Moses to intervene through intercession. Moses intercedes for God’s people, confronts God’s people with the severity of their sin and attempts to substitute himself for God’s people. Yet, God responds in judgment and mercy. The greater reality is that we, who are sinful, need a perfect substitute for our sin and we have one: Jesus.
