fullness of exodus redemption

The point here is that atonement and forgiveness for one’s own sin is not what the exodus redemption was about. It was rather a deliverance from an external evil and the suffering and injustice it caused by means of a shattering defeat of the evil power and an irrevocable breaking of its hold over Israel, in all the dimensions – political, economic, social and spiritual.
