The ancient period had been of a great interest to today’s scientists, mathematicians, and even archaeologists. What we use or see now: the formulas in sciences and mathematics, some structures such as the pyramids, and even the calendar may be the products of the olden time. To find the birth of these, let us trace back time starting from 3000 BC:
Imagine walking through Ancient Egypt in the year 3000 B.C. Images such as the Great Pyramids and mummies may come to mind. There was much more than just giant stone creations and wrapped up corpses, however. There were many rituals that went along with the processes of making these and for almost everything in their lives. Life in Ancient Egypt was very religious and is reflected in historical events, theaters, and the Passion Play of Osiris.
Moses was given a message from the Lord through the burning bush (Leeming 249). He was told to return to Egypt and to free his people from captivity. Moses showed his uneasiness, but God pushed him and reassured him that he would be by his side. However, He continued on to say that He knew Pharaoh would not let the Israelites go and that He would "stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt will all my wonders" (Leeming 250). Moses did as the Lord told him and confronted Pharaoh, someone he considered family for many years. Moses pleaded with Pharaoh to release the slaves. But as the Lord predicted, Pharaoh did not listen and Egypt was now subject to the wrath of God. He watched as the plagues destroyed the vast Egyptian Empire and a sense of betrayal to his "family" swept over him, but he knew this was as it should be.
Recreating biblical narratives is a popular enterprise that can commonly be found as movies and television shows in today’s society. One particular Bible story that well known for being reproduced into motion pictures is the story of Exodus, specifically the parting of the Red Sea. Located in both The Old Testament written by Michael D. Coogan and in the biblical commentary Exodus written by Carol Meyers, both authors state that Exodus is marketable in the film industry due to its exceedingly dramatic effects. One particular recreation of Exodus I enjoyed was The Prince of Egypt. Nevertheless, whenever directors reproduce biblical accounts, they have to change the contents of the story to appeal more to their audience. While the Bible’s story
Each of these articles brought an interesting view to the book of Exodus by giving examples of different perspectives. Interpreting the scripture with different views of the Lord brings out opposing outlooks on Him. Most of us as Christians think traditionally that God is just all loving and patient, He is; but He is also jealous and wrathful. The book of Exodus is a perfect example portraying His love and His wrath on the Israelites.
Egypt is one of the oldest civilizations in the world that appeared before writing and chronicling history. It was settled by primitive peoples from ancient times back to the Late Stone Age (110 thousand years BC). Egypt is also famous for archeology and art, most notably the pyramids.
The movie was very similar to the book of Exodus. Although some details are different, the plot does stay true to Moses’s life. The first part of the movie is true with Exodus, with Pharoah killing all the first-born Israelite children and with Moses’s mother sending Moses away in a basket down the Nile. He is raised as a prince of Egypt, with some differences, and kills an Egyptian. It may have been over dramatic but, Moses did kill the Egyptian. He left to Midian and saved some female shepherds from some men and was able to marry one of them. He married the oldest and settled down on a farm. These major plot lines were correct in the movie, and some detail is similar. In the second half of the movie, Moses returns. Aaron does act as his partner and they talk ...

Throughout the Bible many different men have been essential in fulfilling God’s will. One of the main men that had an extremely important part throughout the history of the Bible is Moses. Moses has a very interesting life in my opinion, he is known as one of the most important prophets not only in the Christian religion but also many other religions. The life of Moses’s is full of accomplishments with the help of God, but also struggles along the way.
