EXODUS, BOOK OF, in the Bible, a book of the Old Testament which derives its name, through the Greek, from the event which forms the most prominent feature of the history it narrates, viz, the deliverance of Israel from Egypt.
The book of Exodus, however, like the other books of the Hexateuch, is a composite work which has passed, so to speak, through many editions; hence the order of events given above cannot lay claim to any higher authority than that of the latest editor.
The sources from which the book of Exodus has been compiled are the same as those which form the basis of the book of Genesis, while the method of composition is very similar.

 Star Trek: Vulcan's Soul, Book 1: Exodus   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
In Vulcan's Soul, Book One, Sherman and Shwartz return to the days of Surak, the messianic philosopher who led Vulcans to embrace the world-saving decrees of logic and self-restraint, and paint a picture of ancient Vulcan that is disturbingly too much like twenty-first century Earth.
Book One, subtitled Exodus, thus sets the stage for more dramatic storytelling in Book Two, to be titled Exiles.
Most of Exodus is set in the far distant Vulcanian past, in the city ShiKahr, where Surak is received as a guest-friend by an engineer named Karatek.
