Vaeira: A Loving God Bursts Upon the Scene

Yetzias Mitzrayim showcases Hashem’s attribute of lovingkindness. This is the deepest conception we can have of Hashem. All other attributes of Hashem - Judge, Lawgiver, etc. are all to advance the greater purpose of Divine chesed (much like a loving parent who disciplines solely for the child’s benefit). This epiphany of a Supreme Being of chesed was a radical departure from the prevalent belief of the idolaters in cruel, authoritarian deities.
