The covenant with God transforms Israel into the start of humanity’s repentance. Christianity recognized in Exodus a shadow of New Testament realities, with Christ being the true bread of life. Ritualism, stiffness of customs, prevalence of a legal spirit, serve mainly as a means to keep Israel separated from other nations in its faith in the one true God. Christianity will use allegory to interpret Jewish legality in a spiritual manner. A philosophy of history according to which the welfare of a society is a reward of her being faithful to the divine commands will be rejected by Christianity, and it is resisted forcefully already in the book of Job.
The book is illuminated and features a relatively large typeface, making its reading a pleasure. You may like to check this edition even if you already have the Septuagint in some other form.
