His attunement to nature is then revealed when he continues to work the land even though he is free. “He was the only man in the realm slave or free to eat dirt,” meaning that the earth was the “only thing in his small life that meant as much…

    An Israelite’s Journal I cannot believe we escaped Egypt. I was sure I was going to die stacking bricks for Pharaoh’s tomb. How Moses convinced the Pharaoh to release us, I cannot fathom. Today was the most terrifying day of my life. Pharaoh sent out his men to retrieve us and enslave us again. We were hemmed by the Red Sea in front and the army behind. I, at the time, wondered what Moses would do because all he had done was cry out to G-d. Today I walked across the Red Sea on…

He did not give them extra strength or wisdom, but God…

Since the book was written a long time ago and is a primary source, it may have a better and accurate outlook of the moral of…

    I believe that the Hebrew Exodus happened the way the Bible told it. There is archeological evidence and especially textual evidence. The people and archeologist who say there was no Exodus weren’t basing their claims on evidence, but the fact that they didn’t find much. Finding and digging up artifacts from that time period is a very hard task. So just because they haven’t found any doesn’t mean it’s not out there. Some people say that for the two million Hebrews to have this march from…
