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 [...]

An excellent academic consideration of the Exodus. Sarna goes deeply into the comparison of the Ancient Near East and Ancient Israel looking at topics such as slavery, law codes, social mores, and polytheism/monotheism. He carefully considers the different meanings/translations of Hebrew words. He blends history and religious belief seamlessly. It was an ideal source book for teaching Exodus.

This is a commentary on the book of Exodus by the Jewish scholar, Nahum M. Sarna. Each chapter deals with large literary units rather than the typical verse by verse exegesis. His focuses mostly on historical and cultural backgrounds to the narrative's setting drawing upon a broad knowledge of the ancient Near East. In fact, this was the book's strength. You won't find raw theology here nor will you be left with simple historiography but rather what Sarna calls historiosophy. This would make a g [...]

This was very interesting, but not as good as his Understanding Genesis, which was amazing. It seemed to drag a bit in a few places -- I don't think Anyone can make the details of the construction of the Tabernacle entrancing -- but most of the "dragging" was probably that I was busy and reading in very short snippets. He did a great job with the Plagues, the Golden Calf, etc. Lots of good stuff. The ending was rather abrupt.

It took me a while to get through this book but I marked it up so it will be easy to re-read interesting passages Have to re-think some of the things learned. Also the little part about Cherubim was new to me

I really liked how he blended Ancient Near Eastern studies to understand the biblical text. It truly shed light for me on the bible, and showed me a new way to interpret and understand the text.

More of a theological inquiry

A must read for anyone doing a serious study of Genesis!
