Starting with the history of Israel in Egypt and portraying the political, social, and religious state of the people prior to the Exodus, Alfred Edersheim leads the reader on the journey of the Israelites through the wilderness to Mount Sinai. Edersheim’s deep devotion to the authority of the Scriptures, his ability to make the Scriptures come alive in their ancient context and his encyclopedic familiarity with ancient Jewish sources all enrich this classic and timeless work.
