Abstract The Einstein vacuum equations in the formulation developed by Newman, Penrose [NP] and Friedrich [Fr] are expressed in terms of a Lie superbracket. Differential identities are derived from the super Jacobi identity. This perspective clarifies the covariance properties of the equations. The equations are intended as a tool for the analytic study of vacuum spacetimes.
