Solution Description

“God promised Abraham that a great nation would arise from his seed that this nation would have a homeland (Canaan), and that the entire world would be blessed by this nation; the events and characters of the Exodus became the heart and soul of the Jewish Religion.”

1.      Discuss ways in which the Exodus experience has been a historical, social, and spiritual metaphor for Judaism through the ages.

The Exodus can be recognized as one of the most pivotal roles in the history of Western civilization. Historically speaking, the application of the Exodus resulted in both literal and metaphorical senses of the term, and experiences of which followed as a result of such; for example, upon application of the Exodus and the understanding of which it brought to the enslaved Israelite people, therein lay the beginning of change in respect to the thinking, and furthered applications of thought through the Hebrew nations. Moreover, research suggests that the once twelve separated and contrasting tribes within the Hebrew nations were, as a result of the Exodus, brought back together as one unified group; no longer separated by individualistic views of what should be, and further connected through what actually is.

Additionally, the results of the Exodus in a symbolic creation resulting in a sense of impending doom of which could be averted through the applications set forth by the Exodus; the ten plaques of which the Pharaoh had once used to exploit fear in his captive people were essentially understood to be simply of a cautionary myth of which might happen in Egypt if the people of the Hebrew nations did not come together as one community while following the rules and laws set forth by the Pharaoh; in this sense, the Pharaoh granted himself the label of God insisting that he was the God to be praised by the Hebrew nations. As a result of the understanding that the ten plaques actually did occur in history, there is speculation that those of whom behaved in a selfish capacity, such as the Pharaoh, were afflicted by all ten plaques as a punishment for the poor behaviors and privation of selflessness exhibited, while those who followed the words and directions put forth by Abraham would be forever saved from such afflictions.
