Life of Moses


One of the great difficulties of teaching on the life of Moses is simply this:  Charlton Heston's portrayal of Moses is very familiar to us.  Indeed, deMille was fairly careful about his slight changes to the Biblical account, taking nothing away of substance, and providing special effects which, for the time, were spectacular.  We may have a map or two, a picture now and then, but the special effects we will leave to C. B.. 

Why is this life important?

  • Moses is the lawgiver of the nation of Israel.  More than anyone else, he shaped God's people.
  • The law he gave is the law under which Christ made His sacrifice for us.
  • Ultimately, the Old Testament points to Jesus Christ - and Moses is a great example of this.
