Exodus

Author: Martin Noth

ISBN: 1330418026

Genre: Religion

Excerpt from Exodus: A Commentary Of this the Old Testament tradition has no more to tell us. Here we have the largest gap in time which is indicated by the Pentateuchal narrative in the form in which it has been transmitted. It was therefore quite appropriate for a new book to begin at just this point when, at a time unknown to us, the great literary work of the Pentateuch was first divided into five books or rather was apportioned between five separate rolls. The ending of the book is a different matter; here the continuity of a coherent narrative is interrupted quite abruptly. The theme of the instructions received by Moses on Sinai and of the way in which they are carried out is by no means exhausted at the end of the book; it continues through the whole of the third book, Leviticus, and into the beginning of the fourth book, Numbers. The practical aspects of a division into five approximately equal parts caused the interruption of the continuity at this point and only by later additions was the last chapter of Exodus made to look like some sort of a conclusion. It therefore follows that Exodus must be understood as part of a larger whole. In view of what has been said, this is true not only of its relationship to the following 'books' but also - in spite of the break which is caused by the transition from one theme to another - of its relationship to Genesis. For the whole complex of the Pentateuchal tradition already had the essential elements of its structure at the stage of oral tradition before it began to be fixed in writing, a development whose results we have today in the 'Five Books of Moses'. This tradition was enshrined in cultic confessions of faith through which on certain occasions the mighty acts of God in the prehistory and early history of Israel were celebrated. These confessions were rooted in particular circumstances in which the action of God had been made manifest, circumstances which are still clearly recognizable as distinctive themes even in the narrative form of the whole as we have it in the transmitted text. The Book of Exodus deals with the central events of the Pentateuchal tradition. The first part of the book describes the Exodus from Egypt. It was always a fundamental expression of Israelite faith that 'Yahweh brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt'. In this event Yahweh had by a decisive act demonstrated for Israel that he was at work in history and at the same time quite clearly took Israel to himself.

Commentary on the Torah

Author: Richard Elliott Friedman
Publisher: Harper Collins
ISBN: 9780062240934
Release Date: 2012-09-18
Genre: Religion

In this groundbreaking and insightful new commentary, one of the world's leading biblical scholars unveils the unity and continuity of the Torah for the modern reader. Richard Elliott Friedman, the bestselling author of Who Wrote the Bible?, integrates the most recent discoveries in biblical archaeology and research with the fruits of years of experience studying and teaching the Bible to illuminate the straightforward meaning of the text -- "to shed new light on the Torah and, more important, to open windows through which it sheds its light on us." While other commentaries are generally collections of comments by a number of scholars, this is a unified commentary on the Torah by a single scholar, the most unified by a Jewish scholar in centuries. It includes the original Hebrew text, a new translation, and an authoritative, accessibly written interpretation and analysis of each passage that remains focused on the meaning of the Torah as a whole, showing how its separate books are united into one cohesive, all-encompassing sacred literary masterpiece. This landmark work is destined to take its place as a classic in the libraries of lay readers and scholars alike, as we seek to understand the significance of the scriptural texts for our lives today, and for years to come.

Homiletical Commentary on the Book of Genesis

Genre: Religion

Excerpt from Homiletical Commentary on the Book of Genesis: Chapters I, to VIII There can be little doubt but that the Book of Genesis was written by Moses, as were the other Books of the Pentateuch. The author of Exodus must have been the author Of Genesis, as the former history is a continuation of the latter, and evidently manifests the same spirit and intention. The use of Egyptian words, and the minute acquaintance with Egyptian life and manners displayed in the history of Joseph, har monize with the education and experience of Moses; and, although the evidence in favour of the Mosaic origin of Genesis is necessarily less full and direct than that for the subsequent books, yet, considering its possession of the linguistic peculiarities com mon to the whole five, its bearing upon the progressive development Of the Jewish his tory, and the testimony borne to it in the New Testament, it comes to us as the authentic work of an author who wrote as he was inspired by the Holy Ghost.

Exploring Exodus

Author: Nahum M. Sarna
Publisher: Schocken
ISBN: 9780307760692
Release Date: 2011-08-10
Genre: Religion

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.
