Exploring Exodus The Origins of Biblical Israel Summary Ð 100 Sarna examines the distinctiveness of the Exodus narrative in light of ancient Near Eastern history and contemporaneous cultures Egypti Beginning with the birth of Moses to the construction of the Tabernacle Nahum M Sarna gives a convincing literary interpretation of Exodus in Exploring Exodus Sarna a Professor of Biblical Studies at Brandeis University gives a full account of the events found in the Book of Exodus and compares the culture and literature with those found in ancient Canaan and Egypt which adds greatly to the understanding of the philosophy and religion that is developed by Moses and the Israelites Much of what Sarna has interpreted about the Book of Exodus is sound with convincing evidence to back up his statements however his assumptions about the timeline of events occurring during the Hyksos rule over Egypt was not convincing Sarna mistakenly assumes that the event of the Exodus happened during the reign of Ramses II because of the listing of the cities of Pi Ramses and Pithom being built by the Israelites which is obviously anachronistic Plus Sarna s exposition about dating the events of the Exodus based on the genealogical record did not add up especially when he does not include that some of the ancestors of the Israelites were not born in Egypt but in Canaan For example Judah s children were born before the famine placing at least two generations in Egypt another example is that Moses mother is much older than his father who was actually her nephew with these considerations it is conceivable that four generations of Israelites lived in Egypt before the Exodus eventAnother troubling issue is the lack of historical record and archaeological data that could be used to better hone his arguments For example Sarna states that state slavery was forced upon the male population which is not true because there are Egyptian documents containing lists of the names of slaves in which women were among the names Outside of the above issues Sarna brings to light the meaning behind the place names and the people for a in depth interpretation In fact his interpretation of the Burning Bush and why it was a sacred place is pure genius and the discussion about the name of God gave me much to ponder about The comparison of the plague account with the story of Creation is another example of why Exploring Exodus is a treasure The explanation of the evolution of the Hebrew calendar is of great value as is the interpretation of the creation of the Tabernacle and its sacred object Exploring Exodus is a literary interpretation that should be on the bookshelf of any serious biblical scholar interested in unraveling the philosophy and literary background of the Book of Exodus
