We just learned about the Joseph.

Another person from the Bible is Moses.

Moses was one of the most important people in the Bible.
His name is mentioned more in the Old Testament than anyone else.
Moses did many amazing things in his life.

When he was born, there was a law to kill Hebrew boys that were born, so his mother put him in a basket by the river. He was found by the Pharaoh's daughter and she saved him.

He grew up and saw that the Hebrews were slaves, so he ran away from Egypt to become a shepherd.
When he was a shepherd, God appeared to him as a burning bush, and told him to go back to Egypt and tell Pharaoh to free the Hebrew people.

The Pharaoh did not listen to Moses, so God made really bad things called plagues happen to the Egyptians.
Water turned to blood, swarms of pests like flies took over the land, and farm animals died.
The last plague was the death of all firstborn children, and after that the Pharaoh let the Hebrews go.
After they left, Pharaoh changed his mind and chased after them, but Moses parted the Red Sea and the Hebrews went across but the Egyptian army drowned trying to follow them.

Moses took his people to Mt. Sinai and God gave him the Ten Commandments.
He built the Ark of the Covenant to put the stone tablets into.

Moses lead his people through the desert for 40 years, and in that time God gave him over 600 laws to tell his followers so they could be safe living in the desert.
