The article presents the study which investigates the relation between the philosophical heritage of open theism to the process theism of the twentieth century. This study assesses one of the most persistent and damaging criticisms in which open theists have leveled against the traditional view stressing the failure of the traditional theism to include certain biblical texts. Furthermore, Exodus was assessed to rely on the foundational dialogues between Moses and God at Mount Sinai.
