    Moses In Exodus

    • 818 Words
    • 4 Pages

    God uses certain people to impact many others. After reading the first twenty chapters of Exodus, it is clear that God was still living out his promise to Abraham through Moses. Moses’ lineage traces back to Jacob, Isaac, and Abraham. God placed the infant Israelite, Moses, in Pharaoh’s household, speaks to Moses, uses Moses to free the Israelites and finally taught the Israelites of God’s laws in these chapters. God’s covenant to Abraham included all of Abraham’s decedents taking over the land and obtaining the covenant. From Abraham to Isaac to Jacob and all the way to Moses, God carried this covenant through the descendants of Abraham. He uses Moses to stay true to his promise. The Israelites were under great oppression, God heard their cries and He sent Moses as an innocent baby into the house of Pharaoh. Pharaoh wanted the midwives to kill all male babies immediately after they were born. The midwives knew that this was not right and stood up against Pharaoh’s laws. God rewarded the disobedience. While the Bible talks about following man’s law, it was interesting to read about God rewarding people that stood for His laws over man’s laws. We must think about this when making decisions in contemporary society. After Moses was born, his mother put him in the river in a basket. He floated right to the Pharaoh’s house. When…

    Moses Impact

    • 443 Words
    • 2 Pages

    The reason I chose to write about Moses is because of his Impact in the Jewish community. In all honesty, he is so great that he expands way beyond Judaism, and reaches into many other religions also. As a child Moses had probably one of the worst child hood stories I have ever heard but still he doesn’t loose faith in his God. Some may argue that he may have been chosen at birth to carry out the word of God. “One traditional story tells that when he was a child, sitting on Pharaoh's knee, Moses…

    Moses Veil

    "Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech— unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away" (2 Corinthians 3:12-13). We've seen how the Apostle Paul has utilized the literary device of comparison in referencing the account of Moses' experience on Mount Sinai as he stood in the presence of God to receive the Ten Commandments. As a result of Moses' encounter with God, we're told that…

    In Exodus 33:12-16, a new side of Moses is visible where he is actively accepting his duty to be the mediator between God and His people. There is also a shift in Moses’ and God’s interaction. Moses begins taking more control of the conversation by professing his thoughts on the Israelites and how they should be lead. This shift extends to the fact that Moses is not just God’s hand picked spokesman to the people, but is now his faithful companion. In the beginning of this excerpt, Moses…

    Deuteronomy 31, 32 and 34 give the account of the succession of Moses by Joshua. When Moses was leading the Israelites out of Egypt, he had several disagreements with God, and as such he could not enter the Promise Land. Among the disagreements included the time he broke the tablets of the Torah and God made him curve them again himself. Also, he was aging and his time of death was near. He, therefore, needed a successor who would lead the children of Israel into the Promised Land. He gathered…

    Jewish philosopher, theologian and scholar, Moses Maimonides, is considered “the most influential Jewish thinker of the middle ages, and quite possibly of all time.” In contemporary society, he continues to influence Jewish adherents’ practices and way of life. Despite being the chief Rabbi of Cairo and physician to the Egyptian sultan in his time, it is his prolific rabbinic writings that have posthumously acknowledged him as the Moses of his time, “From Moses until Moses, there was none like…
