The Birth of Moses Bible Study Lesson
The Moses Birth Event
It's great to have you back again with us at Daily Bread as today we
look at another very well known story about the birth of Moses in the
Our setting of the birth of Moses in the Bible is in Egypt, where at
the time, the children of Israel were slaves because the Pharaoh was
afraid of how strong of a people the Hebrews were becoming in Egypt.
He ordered every Hebrew son that was born to be thrown into the
river. But for one baby boy, things turned out a little differently.
There was a man from the tribe of Levi, who married a woman from the
tribe of Levi. She had a son and when she saw that he was a beautiful
baby, she hid him for three months. When she couldn't hide him any
longer, she made a basket and put the baby in it among the reeds by
the river bank. His sister Miriam stood out of sight watching to see
what would happen to him.
Then Pharaoh's daughter came down to the river with her maidens and
when she saw the basket, she sent a maid to get it. When she opened
it, she saw a crying baby boy, and she pitied him, saying, This is
one of the Hebrews' children.

get a Hebrew woman that can nurse the baby for you? And Pharaoh's
daughter said, Go, so Miriam went and got her mother. Pharaoh's
daughter said to her, Take the baby away and nurse it for me and I
will pay you, so she took the baby.
The child grew and was brought to Pharaoh's daughter and he became
her son. Because she took him out of the water, she named him Moses,
which means, Drawn forth.

he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew. Moses looked around and when
nobody was in sight, he killed the Egyptian and buried him in the

said to the one who did wrong, Why did you hit your friend? The man
said, Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Do you plan to kill
me like you killed the Egyptian?
Moses was afraid because what he did was known. When Pharaoh heard
about it, he planned to kill Moses, but Moses left and came to the
land of Midian. He sat down by a well.
