The Exodus story is foundational to the Bible as whole, referenced throughout both the Hebrew Bible and New Testament. In this story, Moses and the Israelites develop a relationship with the god Yahweh, who delivers them from slavery in Egypt and leads them to the Promised Land.

The Jewish people hold this story as central to their religious narrative; the story is the basis for the Passover holiday and serves as the foundation for Jewish identity.

The story was subsequently taken up by Christianity, with Jesus seen as the new Moses.

The American identity is also founded on this story. The sermon given by John Winthrop on the way to the “new world” invoked imagery that framed the Puritans as the Israelites and their new home as the Promised Land.

The story continues to resonate with a variety of peoples and has been interpreted to speak to a wide range of social identities. This has been especially true in recent decades for groups from the margins.
