The sheep-consuming unit

As they were preparing for the exodus from Egypt, the Israelite movement of the basic national unit from the natural family to the sheep-consuming unit re-defines the national identity as being about a dedication to the Godly purpose and not about the wishes of the head of the family. 
If anything, the prerogatives of the first-born are being usurped in the national founding and are being displaced to a larger group identity, to subservience to the Old One.
