Random Thoughts About Exodus

Image credit:Clipart

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)

Bible study is an excellent way to get our minds actively thinking about God and our relationship with him. In the Old Testament Moses said he couldn't speak properly. Maybe he stuttered. But once God's spirit came upon him and he started speaking for him to Pharoh, you couldn't shut him up, it seems. LOL
I love how God takes people who can't do it on thier own and equips them to do it!

I think that was one of the focus points.
