The book of Exodus records the pivotal events in the formation of biblical Israel—the deliverance from slavery, the leadership of Moses, the wilderness wanderings, and the giving of the Law at Mount Sinai. Bible scholar Nahum Sarna, whose widely praised Understanding Genesis has become a standard text, examines and illuminates the distinctiveness of the Exodus narrative in light of ancient Near Eastern history and contemporaneous cultures—Egyptian, Assyrian, Canaanite, and Babylonian. In a new foreword to this edition, Sarna takes up the debate over whether the exodus from Egypt really happened, clarifying the arguments on both sides and drawing us back to the uniqueness and enduring significance of biblical text.

Just like in the Genesis book, a number of seemingly improbable events are recorded in the book of Exodus. Please don't worry about any of them anymore. The thing is; there is proof of most of the peculiarities, and for the rest, there are reasonable deductions with multiple comparative analysis assuring accuracy and scientific explanation. "Exodus" is truly a wild ride through the highly volatile Egyptian times. Like Genesis, many have trouble with the historical and scientific character of the second book of the Bible. This book looks at specific scientific research, historical reference, secondary Biblical texts and other ancient text comparisons to see if there are any anomalous characteristics that go outside modern scientific theory or historical reason. While the following questions have been used to establish uncertainty of the validity of Moses' second book, what we will find is that the inspiration and detailed accounting of these important egocentric years focused on Jewish development were very accurately and succinctly presented so that a Jewish nation could understand the facts and the rest of us could grow in our understanding of this world and the God who made it. While some of the details were before his time, much of the work was written from firsthand experience of the man we call Moses. A multitude of misrepresented events will be addressed to expand our understanding of this great work and hopefully eliminate the controversies. Some of the things we will find include: Moses was not the name of the Jewish leader during the Egyptian plagues and the hardships endured by the Jewish people were much worse than Moses wrote down. While Moses was king of the Cushites he gained the military knowledge to build the Jewish Army and Amalekites died when the Jews crossed the Red Sea.

Discovering Exodus is the perfect introduction to the interpretation of the book of Exodus. Through a critical assessment of key interpreters and interpretative debates, it encourages in-depth study of the text and a genuine grappling with the theological and historical questions raised. As part of the Discovering Biblical Texts series, Discovering Exodus draws on a range of author-, text- and reader-centred methodological approaches as complementary rather than mutually exclusive ways of understanding the text. It also focuses on the reception history of the Biblical text, increasingly viewed by scholars as a vital aspect of interpretation rather than an optional extra. Discovering Exodus is an ideal commentary for students and those looking to dig deeper into the second book of the Bible. You will gain a solid grasp of the structure and content of Exodus, and a thorough understanding of a wide range of interpretive approaches and theological concerns that will enhance your own reading of the text.

Few events have shaped Jewish and Christian tradition more than the Exodus from Egypt - and few have been as controversial for historians. The emphasis in the past has been on understanding the Exodus in light of Israelite history and Israelite origins. This book - a collection of six papers given at a conference at Brown University - looks at new evidence of the Exodus: the Egyptian evidence.
