Let's learn about another important figure in the Bible, Moses. The story of Moses is told in the book of Exodus and is a central part of the history and beliefs of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
Moses was born in Egypt during a time when the Israelites, the people of God, were enslaved by the Egyptians. Pharaoh, the ruler of Egypt, had ordered that all Israelite baby boys be killed, but Moses' mother placed him in a basket in the river and he was found and adopted by Pharaoh's daughter (Exodus 2:1-10).
As an adult, Moses learned of his Israelite heritage and felt called by God to lead his people out of slavery in Egypt. In Exodus 3:10, God spoke to Moses from a burning bush and commanded him to go to Pharaoh and demand that he let the Israelites go: "Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt."
Moses obeyed God's command and confronted Pharaoh, but Pharaoh refused to release the Israelites. God then sent 10 plagues upon Egypt, culminating in the death of the firstborn of all Egyptians, until Pharaoh finally relented and allowed the Israelites to leave (Exodus 7-12).
Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt and towards the land of Canaan. Along the way, he received the Ten Commandments from God on Mount Sinai (Exodus 20) and led the Israelites through the wilderness for 40 years.
Although Moses was not allowed to enter the promised land of Canaan, his leadership and obedience to God were instrumental in the establishment of the nation of Israel. He is considered one of the greatest prophets in the Bible, and his story has inspired people for thousands of years.
So that's the story of Moses, straight from the Bible! It's a story of courage, leadership, and obedience to God, and it teaches us about the power of faith and perseverance in difficult times.
