Moses

Moses made an outstanding contribution to Catholic teachings and always demonstrated the Catholic virtues. He was chosen by God and had a special connection with God. He believed in Him and wanted others to follow his example. An example of this is the covenant between him and God. He was told to lead the Israelites out of Egypt and slavery so that they could find a better life of freedom. Catholics today have their own special agreement with God. We believe that if we follow God’s teachings, laws, and try to live a virtuous life then we will be reunited with God and all of his believers in heaven. It is our faith and trust in God that we rely on

Another major event that had an impact on Catholics were the Ten Commandments, which were ten laws that told people how to live. The first three commandments which are the central commandments focus on Moses’ promise between you to God. The remaining commandments focus on the promise between you to others. These commandments help Catholics to live a better life so that they will receive eternal salvation and be reunited with him in heaven.

Moses was born in Egypt in 1392 B.C to Amram and Yochebed. He was born in a time when the Egyptians and Israelites did not get along. The Pharaoh had ordered that all newborn male Hebrew children be brought to the Nile River to drown. His parents put him in a waterproof basket and hid him in the tall grasses of the Nile. Baby Moses started crying and a group of women including the Pharaoh’s daughter heard his cries. She rescued him and named him Moses meaning “drawn from the water”. Since she wanted him so badly he now had the best of everything, but he never forgot that he was born a Hebrew. He became a shepherd and while he was looking after his animals he saw a bush burning, but it did not turn to ash. A voice came from the bush which told him that he had been chosen to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt. He returned to Egypt and told the Pharaoh that he should free God’s people. The Pharaoh did not obey and as a consequence nine terrible plagues were created by Moses with the rod he had received from God. Now as the leader Moses went to Mount Sinai where he received the tablets of stone known as the Ten Commandments. Moses told the people and they agreed to the conditions of the covenant. Moses was in constant communication with God and died in Moab, Syria in 1272 B.C.

MosesOur second lifetime achievement award goes to Moses who not only led Israel out of slavery, but gave the people the Ten Commandments.

“Obey all the laws that I am teaching you, and you will live and occupy the land which the Lord, the God of your ancestors, is giving you” (Deuteronomy 4:1)

“Observe the Sabbath and keep it holy” (Exodus 20:8)

One of the major events that have had an impact on Catholics today is the covenant made between God and Moses. God chose Moses to be the person to lead the Israelites out of slavery and into a land of freedom. God promised to make Israel a holy nation, but only if the Israelites obey and follow the laws that Moses speaks about. This was a difficult task for Moses because he needed to be a leader and performed miracles to show them that God chose Moses to help his people.

The third event that has an impact on Catholics today were the miracles that Moses performed. Moses needed to convince the Israelites of what God had told him and he uses the rod he had received from God to show them the power and influence he had. An example is when the Israelites quickly left Egypt and came upon the Red Sea. They thought they would be captured by soldiers, but Moses raised his rod and parted the Red Sea so that they would be safely able to cross. Another miracle that Moses performed was when the Israelites couldn’t find enough water Moses struck a tree and a rock on separate occasions and enough water came out for everyone.

“The Lord your God will send you a prophet, just as he sent me, and he will be one of your own people” (Acts 3:22)
