The book of Exodus is the story of the deliverance of Israel from slavery in Egypt In Exodus God plays a major role in the book Prior to the book of Exodus it is said that God is the creator of the universe However in the book of Exodus God transitions from the role of creator to the destroyer God shows his power by defeating the Pharaoh As we know Pharaoh is a physical embodiment of god in Egypt He can command anything to anyone Yahweh on the other hand does not have a face Unlike Pharaoh He cannot be seen or touched but he is omnipresent I think the reason why Yahweh wants to free the slaves in Egypt is because He wants to show that He has more power than anyone in the universe and no one is higher than He As a result of His show of power He expects people to trust believe and have faith in him I will take you as my people and I will be your God You shall know that I am the LORD your God Exodus 67 In this passage God commands people to know and accept that He is their God and he will look after everyone who believe and accept him as their God The first demonstration of power from God occurs when He speaks to Moses in the burning bush There the angel of the LORD appeared to him in a flame of fire out of a bush Exodus 32 I will send you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of EgyptExodus 310 However Moses questions God by asking for His name God replies I AM WHO I AMExodus 314 This quotation shows Gods attitude toward people questioning Him Because He is the one who creates everything Moses should not question Him Moses then wonders what course of action should be taken should the Israelites refuse to believe
