brachot 38

when does something change into something new?

as the honey drips from the date, the dough becomes bread and the vegetables lose their taste,

was the coming out of Egypt something new, or a reassuring repeat of the past?

(in the middle of the discussion of how the different states of food require different brachot, a discussion about God promising to bring the people out of Egypt being a reminder of the past. for english translation of this talmud page see here)
