The journey of Exodus is the quest for freedom and life. It is the foundation of the Jewish faith and therefore at the heart of the Christian-Judaic heritage. Genuine freedom and fullness of life was the divinely inspired purpose of both Moses and Jesus; both called God's people to journey in faith.
This commentary explores what to the Judaic tradition is the perennial event of Exodus, not just a historical but a continuing journey toward God and toward understanding themselves as God's people. It reveals a powerful story of passage from bondage to freedom, from death to life, and as such is the story of all God's people.
Written with adult study groups and college-level classes in mind, this commentary on the NAB translation provides sound scholarship in a clear, readable style.
