Moses grew to be a man of faith, prayer, humility, and courage—qualities that mark him as a godly servant and leader. Yet he faced many trials and sometimes failed. The story of Moses’ life sounds like a fairy tale. A man and woman live in slavery. They give up their baby to save his life. A princess finds the baby, takes him in, and hires a woman to nurse him. That woman is the baby’s mother. The baby grows up to deliver his people from slavery. But at age 40, Moses has a misstep. He sets out to deliver the Hebrew people from slavery and commits murder. Dr. James Boice teaches how Moses got himself into this mess, how God used it in Moses’ life, and what lessons we can learn from it.
Imagine that God says nothing for 400 years … and one day He breaks His silence. Examine what God did say, when He spoke through a dazzling light coming from a desert plant to an 80-year-old shepherd. Put yourself in Moses’ place. You’re obeying God. You’re face-to-face with Pharaoh. You speak the immortal words: “Let my people go!” And from that moment on: disaster. Pharaoh piles on the work. Your friends turn against you. How can this be happening when you’re obeying God?
