Moses Prince of Egypt


Moses Prince 1
Exodus 3 v 11-12 Moses grew up as a prince in Egypt.
Moses Prince 2
One day he watched his people, the Hebrews, being forced to work hard as slaves by the Egyptians. He was upset at the way his people were being treated.
Moses Prince 3
Exodus 2 v 13-14 When he saw one of the Hebrews being badly treated by an Egyptian he looked around to check no one was watching ...


Moses Prince 4
... then, Moses attacked the Egyptian, killing him. He buried the dead man’s body in the sand.
Moses Prince 5
The next day he saw two Hebrews fighting and went across to stop them. ‘Why are you hitting a fellow Hebrew?’ he asked.
Moses Prince 6
‘Who made you ruler over us?’ came the reply. ‘Are you going to kill us like you killed the Egyptian yesterday?’ Moses was afraid. People knew he had murdered an Egyptian.


Moses Prince 7
Exodus 2 v 15 When Pharaoh found out, he gave orders that Moses should be killed. But Moses ran away, left the country and hid in the far-away wilderness of Midian.
Moses Prince 8
Exodus 2 v 16 Moses rested by a well. The seven daughters of a local priest of Midian came to draw water from the well for their father’s flock.
Moses Prince 9
Exodus 2 v 17-20 But some shepherds arrived and pushed the woman away so they could get water for their flocks first.


Moses Prince 10
But Moses got up, came to their rescue and watered their flocks.
Moses Prince 11
When the girls returned to their father, Jethro (Reuel), he asked why they were back so soon. They explained how an Egyptian had helped them. ‘Invite him for something to eat,’ Jethro told his daughters.
Moses Prince 12
Exodus 2 v 21 Moses was not only invited to the meal but to stay with the family.


Moses Prince 13
Exodus 2 v 22 Moses agreed and later married Zipporah, one of Jethro’s daughters. They had a son who Moses named Gershom. It meant, ‘I have become a foreigner in a foreign land’.
Moses Prince 14
Exodus 2 v 23-24 Some time later Pharaoh died and a new Pharaoh came to rule. The Hebrew slaves cried out to God to rescue them.
Moses Prince 15
God heard their cries for help and remembered His promises to His people. He had a plan to rescue them - and Moses, who was looking after sheep in the wilderness, was part of that plan.
