Maimonides on the Book of Exodus

$24.95$44.95

Rabbi Alec Goldstein’s Maimonides on the Book of Exodus is an essential English guide to the biblical text for the student interested in a holistic perspective on the Bible. The Bible includes many different aspects, including law, narrative, thought and more. Maimonides was a master of all these elements, which is reflected in his broad and diverse writings. Rabbi Goldstein expertly collects and explains Maimonides’ diverse comments across all his writings as they apply to each verse, providing entry to the biblical thoughts of the greatest Jewish thinker. – Rabbi Gil Student, Torah Musings

Goldstein has created a most useful resource that allows the reader to see how Maimonides interpreted both philosophical and legal passages from the book of Exodus. – Ben Rothke, The Jewish Press

10/10. Highly recommended for everyone who enjoys studying Maimonides and wants an easy way to bring him to a Shabbat table, Devar Torah, or conversation. – Rabbi Steven Rohde Gotlib

The best part of this work is that the author does not just collect Rambam’s comments on the verses.  He then tells you how this interpretation differs from that of Rashi. Then he will quote Nachmanides and tell you whose side he is on. By doing this, the book makes a major contribution to Rambam and parsha studies. – Mitchell First, Jewish Link

 

Rabbi Moses son of Maimon, known in Hebrew as Rambam and English as Maimonides (1135-1204), is one of the great luminaries of Judaism whose contributions can hardly be overstated. Though he never authored a linear commentary, he freely quotes biblical verses throughout all of his writings. As interest in Torah learning continues to expand rapidly, this work will surely prove to be a tremendous resource.

Maimonides on the Book of Exodus is the culmination of an exhaustive endeavor to identify where Maimonides quotes or alludes to a biblical passage. This work arranges those comments in the order that the verses appear in the Torah. This work also draws on the great critics and defenders of Maimonides, and those debates are examined in depth. Some questions that are explored include:

  • Are Jews commanded to believe in God?
  • How is Pharaoh’s loss of free will justified?
  • What is the meaning of the cryptic phrase “I am that I am”?
  • What does it mean that God tests the Jewish people?
  • What is the purpose of the Passover offering?
  • What is the purpose of the tabernacle?

On these and many other questions, the answers of Maimonides are explored side-by-side with Rashi, Ra’avad, Nahmanides (Ramban), Kuzari, Sforno, and countless others.
