Creation in the Exodus Torah Portions

Anyone else seeing Genesis in Exodus as you read through the Torah portions this year? In Shemot, the children of Israel are described in terms of the blessing on man and on fish & fowl. In Ve’iera & Bo, the plagues look like creation week being undone, reversing to the darkness of day 1 in Exodus 10 and reversing further to the lamb slain from the foundation of the world in Exodus 12 and the death of the firstborn. Last year, all I could see was the gospel in the Torah portions. This year, it’s all about the new creation. Do you notice a different theme each year as you read? What theme are you noticing this year?
