Rescued Baby. Shepherd. Prophet. Moses was a smart and curious scholar. While he was best known for leading the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt, he was also human. He was a brilliant student, but he was not always patient. Since none of his writings were left behind, it is not always easy for historians to know what is true about Moses. Some people saw him as a prophet. Others felt he made some bad decisions. Moses’ determination and willingness to follow God’s path for him shaped the events in the Bible. The events of Moses’ life have given scientists, archaeologists, and religious scholars much to ponder over for three thousand years.
