Alfred Edersheim's classic commentary on the Biblical Book of Exodus is admired for its fluency of explanation, and for the author's immense knowledge of Old Testament lore.

Exodus, the second book of the Old Testament, is renowned for its telling of how the ancient Hebrews departed from the Kingdom of the Egyptians. Egypt at the time was ruled by the Pharaoh, a proud and domineering ruler who oppressed those who believed in the one, true God. The manner in which God treated His peoples, showing them a path away from the misery of Pharaoh's rule, and unleashing a series of misfortunes upon the Pharaoh and the Egyptian citizens, form some of the Bible's most memorable passages.

Edersheim's narrative is not simply an explanatory reading of the Biblical text; it also delves into the history of Egypt, as discovered by archaeologists and chroniclers of its ancient past. The referencing of multiple and varied sources enhances the commentary, making it useful for students of theology and lay believers alike. The author served as a minister in England; through effort and voracity he became a leading scholar and authority upon the Bible in the 19th century, his books frequently consulted by the Christian priesthood and adherents.
