Red Redemption

R

10 Was it not you who dried up the sea,
    the waters of the great deep,
who made a road in the depths of the sea
    so that the redeemed might cross over?

Here Isaiah captures a type of redemption by pointing us to the story of Exodus and the parting of the Red Sea.

  1. The redeemed, a predestined people. Isaiah points us to Abraham’s calling in the previous verses.
  2. Dissatisfied and unhappy in the world. They had lost their faith in everything.
  3. Shaw shanking Egypt.
  4. A redeemer, YHWH ALONE as our Redeemer. Not Moses, not Joshua and not the people.
  5. A mediator, a middleman, found in the staff. Something to bridge the infinite gap between the Holy One of Israel and the people of Israel. Although Isaiah does not highlight this.
