According to Arnold & Beyer (2008), “the terms of the covenant were a result of God’s grace and love for his people… [and they] established His bond of intimate relationship with them” (p113). All the Commandments show God’s redeeming grace for His people, “He gave them His law in the context of His redemption” (Clowney, 2013, p. 106), and are a “positive expression of God’s will for His people” (Arnold & Beyer, 2008).

Thus, the Book of Exodus was a documentation of the formation of Israel as a nation under theocratic rule. Amongst the promises to Abraham was the assurance that his descendants would be fruitful and multiply (Gen 12:2; 15:5; 17:6). This actually took place during their sojourn in Egypt (Ex 1:7).
First, in Genesis, Abraham was tested by sacrificing his son, Isaac, to be the offering at Moriah (Genesis 22). However, God stopped Abraham from slaying his son when he was prepared to do so. A ram was provided by God and it was sacrificed instead of Isaac. The second event was the origin of the Passover which is recorded in Exodus. It was about the deliverance of Israelites from slavery and Egypt by God who brought them to the promised land (Exodus 12).
" They had to develop an alternative to the sacrificial system that depended on the Temple in Jerusalem! One internet source records that the copyists had to count the number of words of a completed scroll and compare it with the original for accuracy!
