About the Authors
  • This commentary views Exodus as a cultural document, preserving the collective memories of the Israelites and relating them to the major institutions and beliefs that emerged by the end of the time of the Hebrew Bible. It is intended to help the reader follow the story line of Exodus, understand its socio-cultural context, appreciate its literary features, recognize its major themes and values, and also note its interpretive and moral problems. Carol Meyers explains important concepts and terms as expressed in the Hebrew original so that those who know Hebrew as well as those who don't will be able to follow the text.

    • Approaches the problem of the exodus as 'history' by engaging concepts of collective memory to transcend the historical
    • Highlights certain stylistic features of the Hebrew text that are not readily visible to those reading Exodus in translation
    • Pays special attention to the role of women in the narrative and legal materials
