Exodus, Book of

It contains,

  • An account of the increase and growth of the Israelites in Egypt (ch. 1)
  • Preparations for their departure out of Egypt ((2-12:36).).
  • Their journeyings from Egypt to Sinai ((12:37-19:2).).
  • The giving of the law and the establishment of the institutions by which the organization of the people was completed, the theocracy, "a kingdom of priest and an holy nation" (19:3-ch. 40).

    The time comprised in this book, from the death of Joseph to the erection of the tabernacle in the wilderness, is about one hundred and forty-five years, on the supposition that the four hundred and thirty years (12:40) are to be computed from the time of the promises made to Abraham (Galatians 3:17 ).

    The authorship of this book, as well as of that of the other books of the Pentateuch, is to be ascribed to Moses. The unanimous voice of tradition and all internal evidences abundantly support this opinion.
