Is the exodus from Egypt the central act of God in the Pentateuch

What is the most important teaching of the first five books of the Bible?



Thanks for asking a question on
No it isn't. It is one of them. In Genesis, the promise to Eve in 3:15 and the promises to Abraham beginning in chapter 12 are key and provide the basis of all subsequent revelation including the New Testament. The Exodus' purpose was to prepare Israel as God's people through whom He would reveal Himself to the world. The key events in that process were rescuing them from Egypt, the revelation of His law, the establishment of the Tabernacle as a formal meeting point of worship and sacrifice and the provision of their territory, the Kingdom of God in Canaan.
