This commentary is primarily for Bible readers, teachers, and ministers who wish to include all of Scripture in their studies and sermons. Its point of departure is the text as transmitted to us, rather than the prehistory of the text -- that is, the text as we have it now rather than the process that led to its formation. My commentary on the book of Exodus employs Jewish traditions of interpretation. It is not my intent to provide a critical discussion of textual and historical questions that involve the book of Exodus. In this commentary, I will treat Exodus as an integrated narrative, a story of Moses in Egypt and at Sinai, leading God's people from slavery. Instead of a verse-by-verse commentary, I discuss larger units, arranged according to their major themes. When the Bible is quoted, the translation is the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV). - A word from the author.
