The Meaning Of The Book Of Exodus

Parshat Pekudei (Exodus 38:21-40:38) is the conclusion of Exodus, which is the perfect time to ponder: what is the Book of Exodus really about? Exodus touches on many major themes – it is known for Israel’s escape from Egypt, the sea splitting, the Ten Commandments, the Golden Calf, and the Tabernacle. We read these stories year after year, but how often do we stop and consider – what do the main themes of Exodus really teach us? What is the main concept of the Book of Exodus? What makes it all hold together?

After all, the Author of this book, God, wrote it as an integrated whole, and we are its intended audience. What meaning does He want us to get out it? In this video, we zoom out to look at the main themes that connect the stories, and how this affects the meaning of the Book of Exodus as a whole.
