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.

In the spirit of Cyril Barber’s classic work from the 1970s, The Minister’s Library, Robert Yost provides students and pastors with expert guidance on building a working ministerial library. From Old and New Testament languages, lexical aids, and grammatical tools, to commentaries and theologies as well as pastoral resources, Yost is a trustworthy guide through the multiplicity of books that seem to just keep rolling off the presses. Far more than just a guide to commentaries as are so many works today, this resource is a balanced pastoral tool for pastors and students who are overwhelmed by the proliferation of literature in the fields of biblical and pastoral studies.

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.

Exodus Leviticus Numbers Deuteronomy

Author: Joseph T. Lienhard

Genre: Religion

From its inception the church has always had a Bible--the Jewish Scriptures. But Christians have not read these Scriptures in the same way the Jews did. They have read them in the light of what God did in Jesus the Christ. Thus the Jewish Scriptures became for Christian readers the Old Testament. This Ancient Christian Commentary on Exodus through Deuteronomy bears ample witness to this new way of reading these ancient texts. Among the earliest interpreters whose works remain extant is Origen, who virtually single-handedly assured the Old Testament a permanent place within the Christian church through his extensive commentary and reflection. His twenty-seventh homily on Numbers is particularly noteworthy for his interpretation of the forty-two stopping places in the desert wanderings as the forty-two stages of growth in the spiritual life. Among Greek-speaking interpreters, the current volume draws widely on John Chrysostom, Clement of Alexandria, Basil the Great, Gregory of Nazianzus, Gregory of Nyssa, Cyril of Alexandria, Theodoret of Cyr and John of Damascus. Among Latin-speaking interpreters, quotations from Augustine, Ambrose, Jerome, Peterius, Caesarius of Arles, Cassiodorus and Isidore are found in abundance. Ephrem and Aphrahat are represented among Syriac speakers. Numerous other interpreters are present from each grouping. Varied in texture and nuance, the interpreters included in this volume edited by Joseph T. Lienhard display a treasure house of ancient wisdom that speaks with eloquence and intellectual acumen to the church today.

Presenting a new perspective on the saga of the enslavement of the Jewish people and their departure from Egypt, this study compares the Jewish experience with that of African-American slaves in the United States, as well as the latter group’s subsequent fight for dignity and equality. This consideration dives deeply into the biblical narrative, using classical and modern commentaries to explore the social, psychological, religious, and philosophical dimensions of the slave experience and mentality. It draws on slave narratives, published letters, eyewitness accounts, and recorded interviews with former slaves, together with historical, sociological, economic, and political analyses of this era. The book explores the five major needs of every long-term victim and journeys through these five stages with the Israelite and the African-American slaves on their historical path toward physical and psychological freedom. This rich, multi-dimensional collage of parallel and contrasting experiences is designed to enrich readers’ understanding of the plight of these two groups.

Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament Vol 2

Excerpt from Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament, Vol. 2: The Pentateuch Hap. X11. 1 - 28. Institution OF the passover. The deliverance of Israel from the bondage of Egypt was at hand; also their adoption as the nation Of Jehovah (chap. Vi. 6, But for this a divine consecration was necessary, that their outward severance from the land of Egypt might be accompanied by an inward sever ance from everything of an Egyptian or heathen nature. This consecration was to be imparted by the Passover - a festival which was to lay the foundation for Israel's birth (hos. Ii. 5) into the new life of grace and fellowship with God, and to renew it perpetually in time to come. This festival was there fore instituted and commemorated before the exodus from Egypt. Vers. 1 - 28 contain the directions for the Passover: viz. Vers. 1 - 14 for the keeping of the feast of the Passover before the departure from Egypt, and vers. 15 - 20 for the seven days' feast of unleavened bread. In vers. 21 - 27 Moses com municates to the elders of the nation the leading instructions as to the former feast, and the carrying out of those instructions is mentioned in ver. 28. Vers. 1 and 2. By the words, in the land of Egypt, the law of the Passover which follows is brought into connection with the giving of the law at Sinai and in the fields of Moab, Israel as the people of Jehovah (isa. Xliii. 15) commenced with the institution of the Passover. As a proof of this, it was pre ceded by the appointment of a new era, fixing the commence ment of the congregation of Jehovah. This month (i.e. The present in which ye stand) be to you the head (i.e. The be ginning) of the months, the first let it be to you for the months of the year, i.e. Let the numbering of the months, and therefore the year also, begin with it. Consequently the Israelites had hitherto had a different beginning to their year, probably only a civil yehr, commencing with the sowing, and ending with the termination of the harvest (cf. Xxiii. 16) whereas the Egyptians most likely commenced their year with the overflowing of the Nile at the summer solstice (cf. Lepsius, Chron. 1, pp. 148 The month which was henceforth to be the first of the year, and is frequently so designated (chap. X1. 2, I7; Lev. Xxiii. 5, is called Abib (the ear-month) in chap. Xiii. 4, xxiii. 15, xxxiv. 18, Deut. Xvi. 1, because the corn was then in ear; after the captivity it was called Nisan (neh. Ii. 1 Esth. Iii. It cor responds very nearly to our April.
