“Retelling, or re-enacting, the story of the exodus, then, was a classic and obvious way of pre-telling, or pre-enacting, the great liberation, the great ‘return from exile’, for which Israel longed. Moreover, the ‘popular’ prophets in particular seem to have been informed by the memory of the great classical prophets, not least the prophetic ministry of Moses and Joshua. We are here in touch with part of what we will later see to be bedrock within the Jesus-tradition.” http://biblia.com/books/jesusvictygod/offset/725302 via the Logos Bible Android app.
