Redemption and the Exodus

In a chapter in which the author discusses Jewish concepts of redemption, David Daube states,“Let us note that, from the first, the liberation from Egypt meant much more than a liberation from physical sufferings. From the first, the Exodus included Mt. Sinai. It meant, therefore, salvation both in the physical and the spiritual sense.”
