So we've been reading Exodus in Bible study. And during said study, there are few things that I heard or thought that never before occurred to me or that just sounded interesting. Please note that we aren't far in, so this won't be covering the whole book.
- Technically, Moses' mother did throw him in the Nile. Well, not throw precisely, but she was following the letter of the law. (Exodus 1:22 and 2:3)
- Did the Pharaoh that became Moses' grandfather ever truly accept him as an heir? (Exodus 2:15)
- Later in the Bible, Moses is called "mighty in words". (Acts 7:22) Yet he later shows insecurity in his speaking abilities. Might he have taken a blow to his confidence after the manslaughter, plus the forty years of being a shepard would have meant he didn't talk to people much? (See Exodus 2 and 3)
- Maybe Pharaoh asked for a delay of the frogs' removal because he wanted to see if they'd leave on their own. (See chapter 8)
