Ramses the Pharaoh wouldn’t let the Israelites out of Egypt, so Moses stepped in and led the Israelites out of Egypt, which we know as the Exodus. If I were an Israelite, I would join Moses out of Egypt. I would do this because being a slave would mean being tortured. Moreover, Moses had powers from God, so it was save to be with him. He had the Ten Commandments, so people would know how to live their daily lives.
Moses, however, persuaded God to rethink his decision through logic and reasoning. “Lord,” he said, “why should your anger burn against your people, whom you brought out of Egypt with great power and a mighty hand? Why should the Egyptians say, ‘It was with evil intent that he brought them out, to kill them in the mountains and to wipe them off the face of the earth’? Turn from your fierce anger; relent and do not bring disaster on your people.” By seeing the fault in His potential actions, God saw the good in Moses’ plea and had a change of
For this assignment I have chosen to analyze the section from Exodus where G-d approaches Moses about leading the Israelites out of Egypt. I found this interesting as it begins the tale of the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt; one can argue that this was one of the most seminal and inspiring events in all of human history. In Exodus 3, 1-15 G-d chooses and recruits Moses to lead the Exodus. Moses’ leadership provided the inspiration for freedom seekers for generations; yet Moses questions his ability to carry out this task. In this paper I will explore the interactions between G-d and Moses when Moses is persuaded to assume this leadership role.
I am going to be talking about Moses and the law it was written in the book of exodus. Moses was born a Hebrew in Egypt. Hebrews we're an Israelite slave in Egypt at the time when Moses was born Hebrews started to expand so large that the Egyptians started getting terrified and saying what if the Hebrews outgrow us? If they outgrow us that means the Hebrew will out number the Egyptians so therefore if the Hebrews wanted to take over they will be able to because they outnumber the Egyptians. Pharaoh came up with this idea If he killed all Hebrew baby boys at birth he wouldn’t have to worry about that problem so Pharaoh ordered that all Hebrew baby boys are to be put to death at birth.

Moses helped the Hebrews a lot. With the many things he did, he got them out of Egypt. In my perspective, if I was a Hebrew slave, I would follow Moses out of Egypt. I would follow Moses out of Egypt because the Hebrews were slaves. Moses had the power of God, along with the Ten Commandments. I would want to avoid the plagues.
Moses knew how to not bow to the complaints of the children of Israel (Exodus 17:3), but also knew how to hear godly counsel from a man like Jethro. Oh Moses listened to this man of God…he took advice from a friend… he did not say, don’t worry God got my back… he did not say, haven’t you heard how I lead the children on dry land….or how I did this and how I did that… oh brother and sister break it down a little more.. Moses did not brag about how many members he had, or new building were being under construction, he did not talk about the choir having a new record deal or how the church just brought a brand new bus... Moses… listened... Men that are called by God to lead are always in danger of attempting to encompass more than they are able…
Moses replied,“The Lord God of the Hebrews command that you let his people go so that they may serve Him. Now, Aaron will stretch his rod towards the cattle of Egypt and they will all die.”
Moses’ sister Miriam came out and asked Pharaoh’s daughter if she would want a Hebrew woman to raise the child and Pharaoh’s daughter agreed. She gave Moses to Miriam, who took him to Jochebed. Pharaoh’s daughter later got him back and gave him the name Moses. He grew up as a prince with respect and royalty. He would deliver his people from pharaoh but didn’t understand it. God made him a ruler over them but they still rejected him, the same way Jesus was rejected. Moses and Jesus can be compared as they share some similarities. They were both favored by God and were rejected. Pharaoh sought to kill Moses because he had killed an Egyptian soldier, so he fled to a land called Midian because he would have find refuge there. One day, Moses sat by a well, he saw some women, getting water. The owner of the land came and told them to leave but Moses stood up for them and watered the flock. They told their father and he was brought into the family. The father sat him and he ate with them, later he gave his daughter Zipporah to him. She, later gave him a son. The Israelites cried out to God because they wanted to be free. One day Moses led his flock up a mountain,
Moses, in the book of Exodus, was obedient to God and chose to carry the burden of freeing the Jewish people. He used nature to plague the Egyptian Pharaoh in freeing the Jewish slaves. However, God did not cause harm to the Egyptians because he did not love them, in fact, he gave them the warnings of the plagues to come; unfortunately, they did not listen and underwent the suffering. Despite nature’s evil during the seven plagues, the positivity that came out of it was the release of the Jewish people for the Pharaoh. They had been enslaved for many years, but they were finally able to be free once
Events in Egypt (Exodus 2:23-12:42) The Burning Bush Moses was tending to his father-in-law’s sheep when he saw a burning bush. The bush was not being consumed by the fire. God called out to him and told him he was on Holy ground. God then explained that the Hebrews were suffering and that He was going to send them to a great land flowing with milk and honey. This place was called the Promised Land. God sent Moses to the Pharaoh to let the Hebrews go. Moses questioned his authority to do what God told him. God explained that He would be with Moses on his journey. Moses questioned whether the Hebrews will know who God is. God then says “I am who I am” this was what Moses was to tell the Hebrews.
To escape persecution from Pharaoh, Moses flees to Midian. By leaving his familiar surroundings, Moses finds himself crossing a threshold into a foreign land. To get to Midian, Moses must cross the Desert of Sin. The crossing of the threshold is the first step into the sacred zone of the universal source (Campbell 81). In Midian, he befriends and then marries the daughter of Jethro, priest of Midian. Moses becomes a shepherd as he adjusts to his new life. There is an enormous contrast between Moses' life as an Egyptian prince and his life as a Midianite shepherd. As a prince he had everything done for him. As a shepherd he had to do everything for himself; he was holding the very job that he had been taught to despise, and he lived as an unknown foreigner. This was a humbling experience for Moses. Living the life of a shepherd and nomad, Moses learned about the ways of the people he would be leading and also about life in the desert. Campbell would say that Moses was swallowed into the belly of the whale (Campbell 90). Moses couldn't appreciate these lessons, but they were preparing him to free Israel from Pharaoh's
~ The Jews, were being used as slaves in Ancient Egypt and were looking for their promise land. Moses was the one who brought them to their freedom to bring them forward to their promise land, sent forth by God. Saul ~ The first king of the new promise land for the
God narrative flow hears the Israelites moaning and groaning, so He emergence Moses an Egyptian to be the leader of faith in Egypt. God narrative plan continues perfectly for Him that His promise for every generation is fulfilled in the earth and among covenant with Abraham, Jacobs, and Isaac families. Fretheim study highlights the main events of God structure plan for Israelites journey through Exodus concerning Moses as their leader.

Exodus flows with several phenomena events taken place “the Passover and the feast of unleavened bread, the Red Sea crossing, and giving of the law at Mt. Sinai” for the people of Israel to recognized God constitutive foundation establishment for ongoing communities of faith (101-102). God capture Moses attend through a burning bush. Moses, Moses, God calls take off your sandals you are standing Holy ground and Moses reluctantly said this is I God informs Moses to go and demand Pharaoh to let the Israelites go free. Fretheim reflects that “God actions are because of Pharaoh disobedience to the will of His creation of a
Moses was a humble man, but God sees that he is mightier than Moses sees himself. When God tells him that he must lead the Jews out of Egypt, he grows fearful and unworthy of such a task. Moses humility toward God is what makes him capable of such a tremendous mission. Although, he would have much rather not lead the Jews out of Egypt because he is afraid and does not have faith in himself, however, he is able to do it because God has told him to and God would not ask him to do so if it was impossible. Moses successfully leads the Hebrews out of Egypt. Moses was capable of freeing the Jews of slavery with a quality of humility (No Title, 1986).
