Description The Exodus is a multi-layered and very important theme throughout the Bible. One of the most fascinating things to me is how much the Exodus and all of the things surrounding it point to the gospel and our future redemption in Christ. We see the gospel in everything from God passing-over and saving those who had the blood of a lamb over them to the theme of breaking free from bondage and slavery and being ushered miraculously into a new redeemed life.The graphic is split into two parts. The first is in the Old Testament and traces every instance where the phrase 'out of Egypt' was used. The books are then arranged in size by the amount of times the phrase was used. Each circle in the OT section is incomplete as the Exodus was only a type of the ultimate future redemption to come.In the NT we have complete circles representing the fulfilled redemption in Christ. Here I've traced every instance where the words freedom or salvation are used. The size of the circles indicates the number of times the words were used.
Josh Byers, Polk City Member Since March 2012 Artist Statement I’m a ordinary guy who has been blessed with a beautiful wife, three awesome kids, a job I love, a church that is a family and a life I don’t deserve.
My passions and pursuits vary and change as time goes on but these are the things I’m most consistently fond of: playing Super Mario Bros. with my family, watching movies and serial TV shows, the Denver Broncos, drinking way too many Starbucks mochas and cans of Coke Zero, listening to film scores, designing fun and beautiful things and purchasing just about anything that Apple makes.
I’m trying to be a better writer and would love to write a book someday. I’m an amateur photographer and I just purchased my first prime lens. I’m a former high school athlete who thinks he was better was than he really was even though I have the letter jacket to prove it… I still love to play flag football, softball, racquetball and anything else that gives me an excuse to exercise my competitive nature.
My one claim to fame is that I created a website for movie star Rachel McAdams which then was then featured by multiple media outlets including USA Today and the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brian.
Because Jesus died and came back to life I’m able to have my sins forgiven. I follow Him with a passion and with no apologies. Since I am a Christian and my worldview is that of a Christ follower everything I do is in light of that worldview. My design and pursuits are all attempts to image my creator in a way that brings Him the most glory.
