      Maimonides on the Book of Exodus is the culmination of an exhaustive endeavor to identify where Maimonides quotes or alludes to a biblical passage. This work arranges those comments in the order that the verses appear in the Torah. This work also draws on the great critics and defenders of Maimonides, and those debates are examined in depth.
