Summary of Exodus Rabbah (View)
Date: 1200 C.E.
Description: Shemot Rabbah is a midrash on the Book of Exodus, consisting of two distinct parts compiled in different eras: the first provides verse-by-verse interpretations of the first ten chapters of the Book of Exodus, while the second offers sermons connected to chapters 12-40. The two parts were likely compiled into one work around the 12th century, and the dating of each section is subject to debate.
