Although Israel's deliverance from Egypt is mentioned explicitly nine times in the book of Judges, the exodus motif in Judges has received little attention. The author utilizes a literary-theological approach in order to determine the significance of the exodus motif for the narrative of Judges. He concludes that the exodus tradition serves as a witness to YHWH's power and faithfulness that calls Israel to obedience and encourages their hope in YHWH's present and future attentiveness.
