Abstract

Benedetta Rossi explores the reception of Exodus in the prophetic books. Exodus is commonly recognised as a founding myth within the prophets. Following up the three major lines of interpretation of the reception of Exodus in the prophetic books, the survey methodology is reconsidered. The analysis undertaken in this chapter does not limit itself to exit formulas and the actual departure from Egypt but focuses on a network of Exodus motifs. A major focus is on intertwining references to Exodus and other OT writings and contrasting receptions of Exodus in the prophetic books. The prophets resume, modify and use Exodus motifs to relaunch history (battle of Yhwh and divine wonders, election and covenant, exit from Egypt and entering the land).
