Moses was born in 1391 BC in Land of Goshen. According to the Exodus, Moses was born somewhere around the months of February to march. During this time the Hebrews were slaves in Egypt and any newborn Hebrew boys were to be drowned, so that no one could overpower the pharoh. Jochebed, the mother of Moses hid him in a basket by the side of the River Nile. After about three months, when she could not hide Moses anymore she casted him into the Nile river on an ark. The pharaoh's daughter Thermuthis found the baby in the water and kept him as her own son. Moses grew up as an Egyptian prince but he never forgot he was Hebrew. One day when he was taking a trip to the country side Moses saw a Hebrew being beaten by an Egyptian, Moses killed the Egyptian and buried his body. Everyone figured out Moses was the one who killed the man, therefore Moses fled to Midian. There, he saved seven of Jethro's daughter's from a band of rude shepherds. Jethro adopted Moses as his son and got one of his daughters to marry Moses. For four decades, Moses stayed in Midian and lived as a shepherd. One day Moses came across a burning bush and as he got closer he heard a voice coming from it. It was believed that the voice was God, who revealed himself to Moses. God told Moses to go back to Egypt and free the Hebrews from slavery. Moses went back to Egypt and asked the new pharoh for the freedom of the Hebrews but the pharoh refused. God put 10 plagues on Egypt because of this, and eventually the pharoh instructed the Hebrews to leave. The Hebrews rushed from Egypt before the pharoh changed his mind, which he did and ordered his army to get back the Hebrews. Moses took the Hebrews to the Red sea and parted the sea making a path and once the Hebrews crossed Moses drowned the following Egyptians. The Hebrews traveled for a long time to mount Sinai at which Moses revealed the 10 commandments to the people. There is no specific information about the death of Moses, but it is said that he was 120 years old at the time of his death.


“You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments." (Exodus 20:2-17)

"Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not."Exodus 20:20

"Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?"Exodus 3:11

The three major events in Moses' life were when Moses found out he was of Hebrew decent, this event was what made Moses go onto the path of freeing the Hebrews from slavery and believing in God. The second most important event in Moses' life was when he spoke to God in the form of a burning bush. Moses spoke to God and began his belief in God, it is also the event that made Moses go back to Egypt and freee the Hebrews from slavery. The final most important event in Moses' life was when he told everyone of the 10 commandments because it is what all catholics today follow and believe in. The 10 commandments are the rules for catholics and that is why that event is important because Moses brought those rules onto us.

3 Most important Events in Moses' Life

Moses has made a very huge contribution to catholic teachings by delivering us the 10 commandments the 10 commandments are very important to catholics and are the rules for catholics to follow, so that they could be better catholics and live more holy lives. following the 10 commandments means following Gods rules and leading you on the path to heaven. An every day example of someone following one of the 10 commandments is me, I follow the commandment of honor your father and mother daily. I respect my parents and put them first in front of my friends. Sometimes i get mad at them but i always get over it because they do what is best for me. I love my mother a lot and hug her every day. I love my father a lot too and we spend a lot of time together and bond. I respect both my parents and listen to what they say i should do because they are the reason i am on this earth and the reason why i am a catholic.
