The Exodus Plagues as De-Creation?

Peter Leithart on Psalm 105 and the plagues of Exodus... "the summary begins in darkness (reversing the first day of creation) and ends with the death of firstborn sons (reversing the sixth day of creation)"

De-creating Egypt whilst re-creating the universe with his own firstborn at the centre of it? A new humanity being brought to the mountain of the Lord... Interesting.
