Sefer Shmot - Introduction
What is Sefer Shmot?
Before we talk about what "shmot" means, let's first explain what the word "sefer" implies.
In our study of Chumash [the five 'books'], we work under the basic assumption that each "sefer" [book] carries a unique theme. Therefore, as we study each sefer we attempt to identify that theme. Then, we consider that theme in our study of each individual chapter or unit.
In our study of Sefer Breishit, we employed this approach to uncover its primary theme of "bechira." Now, in our study of Sefer Shmot, we employ a similar approach to uncover its own theme, as well as its connection to that of Sefer Breishit.
So what binds Sefer Shmot together? As we will show, this is not an easy question to answer.
