Starting from the very beginning of Moses’s life, he was born in Egypt when the Egyptians enslaved the Hebrew people. During this time the Pharaoh had ordered that all new male Hebrew children to be drowned in the Nile River. Moses’s mother could not bring herself to do this to her newborn baby, though and instead floated him down the Nile in a basket, essentially putting him into God’s will. Even at this young age God was looking out for Moses, because eventually the Pharaoh’s own wife found and raised Moses’s as if he was her own.
Later on in Moses’s life he had became fearful for his life and ran away from Egypt where he became a Sheppard and got married. It was during this time that God had spoken to Moses for the first time through a burning bush, a story many of us can recall. During this conversation God revealed his wishes. Moses was to go back to Egypt after all of this time and free the Hebrew people from slavery. God had also taught Moses’s a few other things in hope of getting the new Pharaoh to see God’s power and agree to the terms.

...r home. They have to keep it until the fourteenth of that month and then must eat it in a hurry because it is the Passover Sacrifice. Then once they do that they must eat bread for seven days than on the next day they have to clear out yeast from their houses. Although today religions don’t exactly practice it in this way. For instance, Christians we experience Passover every spring, where we are essentially suppose to pray and fast for forty days.
In conclusion, I am intrigued by Moses story and accomplishments he had made throughout his lifetime. The fact that some of his accomplishments still today hold some sort of importance is amazing. Moses remains one of the most well known men throughout the Bible, and whose story is still told today. The life of Moses’s is full of accomplishments with the help of God, but also struggles along the way.

- Moses is set off on a journey with many trials and tribulations. He returns to Egypt with his brother, Aaron to organize the Israelites and face the Pharaoh to request their freedom. Upon the Pharaoh’s rejection Moses performs a miracle of God by turning his staff into a snake. Rather than release the Israelites, Pharaoh drives the enslaved Israelite workforce harder.

Finally, Moses threatened the Pharaoh with the death of all first-born sons of Egypt.... [tags: Moses, Ten Commandments, Bible, Book of Exodus]
