(2:4) A Flight from Egypt or an Expulsion?

Our historical interpretation of the traditions found in Genesis and applied to the Exodus’ opening narrative, has highlighted some of the economic, social and religious pressures that are as relevant to today’s cosmopolitan societies as they were 4,000 years ago. Pharaoh as maintainer of ma’at, justice, balance and order, was responsible for championing a set of moral, spiritual, and civic responsibilities that fortify humanity, both individually and collectively. Yet our historical interpretation suggests that he was pursuing a sedentary agenda at the expense of the nomadic populous.
