The Exodus

In the opening chapters of the book of Exodus God appears to Moses in the burning bush on the slopes of Mount Sinai and reveals to him the name, Yahweh, by which he wishes to be known.  From then on, and until the final entrance into the Promised Land, Yahweh tirelessly leads the Israelite people -- according to the ancient creeds -- "by a column of smoke by day and a pillar of fire by night".

"You shall be my people", says Yahweh, "and I shall be your God"
