Among the biblical pilgrims and sojourners encountered in the study are Abraham and Sarah, Moses and the people of the Exodus, the Jews of the Babylonian exile, the Holy Family and Christs first disciples. The commentary is written with full citations of the appropriate biblical texts and provides insight into the biblical characters, historical settings and modern applications.Weekly SessionsIntroductory SessionLesson 1 - The Cal of Abraham and SarahLesson 2 - Exodus and EntryLesson 3 - Exile and ReturnLesson 4 - Come, Follow Me
