By establishing through literary analysis that the biblical Exodus theme finds typological fulfillment in historical events and occurrences of the Book of Mormon, Tate demonstrates that “typological unity” exists in the Book of Mormon. This theme plays a prominent role, and finds actual and figural usage in the Book of Mormon. It is a recurring theme built upon by many inspired writers—Nephi, Jacob, and Alma the Younger.
