Mose sgrade6

  1. 1. MOSES: Keeper of the Covenant
  2. 2. • After many generations, the Egyptian Pharaoh began to fear that the Hebrew people (the Israelites) would take over Egypt • Pharaoh forced the Hebrews into slavery, and ordered that first-born Hebrew baby boys should be drowned • A Hebrew woman placed her baby in a basket and left him among the reeds of the Nile River
  3. 3. • Pharaoh’s daughter noticed the basket and felt compassion for the baby. She hired the baby’s own mother to care for hm.
  4. 4. • Pharaoh’s daughter adopted the baby and named him Moses, which means “drawn from the water” • Moses was raised and educated in the Egyptian palace, but he knew that he was Hebrew • He was angered by the way his people were treated, going so far as to kill an Egyptian who had hit a Hebrew slave
  5. 5. • Moses fled to Midian and worked as a shepherd • One day while Moses was tending his flock on Mount Sinai, God came to him in the form of a burning bush
  6. 6. • God called Moses by name and told him that he would rescue his people and lead them to a land “flowing with milk and honey.” • God told Moses to go to Pharaoh to convince him to release the Hebrews • When Moses asked God, “Whom shall I say sent me?” God replied, “I am who am. I am the Lord, the God of your fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” • In Hebrew, the name of God translates to YAHWEH
  7. 7. • God sent Moses’ brother Aaron to assist Moses • Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh, telling him God’s message was to “Let my people go.” • Pharaoh refused, in spite of the sign of God’s power, when Aaron’s staff turned into a snake
  8. 8. • Moses warned Pharaoh – “If you refuse us, I will turn the water of the river to blood; all the fish will die and the water will be unfit to drink.” • Pharaoh ignored Moses; Moses struck the Nile with his staff and the river turned red
  9. 9. • Next came a plague of frogs swarming the land. Still, Pharaoh refused to release the Israelites • More plagues followed: gnats, flies, disease of people and animals, hailstones, locusts and days of darkness • Each plague was a sign that God was speaking through Moses, but Pharaoh would not change his mind
  10. 10. • God told Moses to warn Pharaoh about a final plague. Every firstborn son in the land would die. • Pharaoh did not believe this would happen • The Israelites were told to sprinkle lamb’s blood on their doorposts. Their houses would be “passed over” and their sons would be spared • This event is celebrated as Passover. This is what Jesus was celebrating at the Last Supper.
  11. 11. • When all the Egyptian firstborn sons died, including Pharaoh’s, he agreed to let the Israelites go • This escape out of Egypt is known as the Exodus
  12. 12. • Days after releasing the Israelites, Pharaoh changed his mind and sent soldiers to bring them back • They had come to the Red Sea; God directed Moses to raise his staff. The water parted and a dry path was made in the sea. The Israelites crossed safely.
  13. 13. • When the Egyptians tried to follow, the sea came together and they were drowned. • The Israelites had left Egypt to search for their Promised Land
