The book of Exodus is the West’s meta-narrative of hope. It tells an astonishing story of how a group of slaves were liberated from the mightiest empire of the ancient world. Theologically, its message is even more revolutionary: the supreme power intervenes in history in defense of the powerless. Exodus is about the birth of a nation; about politics, society, and the principles on which a people can come together to form associations. Thus it teaches us about justice, freedom and the rule of law; about the sanctity of life and human dignity, At the heart of Exodus is the monumental covenant at Sinai, which is nothing less than the first-ever statement of a free society, in which an entire nation committed itself to the sovereignty of God, with the revolutionary understanding that the religious situation is a partnership, a reciprocal relationship, between God and humankind.
