The Exodus From Egypt In The Bible

Understanding Yetziat Mitzrayim

We don't generally connect the origins of the 10 Commandments to Passover. Instead, we usually celebrate the great miracles that God performed for the Israelites, namely, taking them out of Egypt. But isn’t it strange that right after the Israelites were freed, God enforced the laws of the Ten Commandments without warning?

Sure, God took them out of slavery, but wouldn’t it have been nice to at least mention the laws before the Israelites left Egypt? What is the hidden connection between Pesach and the Ten Commandments?

Rabbi Fohrman argues it's an important theme throughout the Exodus from Egypt that highlights our unique relationship with God. Join Rabbi Fohrman as he explores the roots of the Ten Commandments in the Burning Bush story – the original commandments story – and never read the Exodus from Egypt the same way again.
