The great lawgiver of the Torah and thus a figure of central importance for groups concerned to remain faithful to the Sinai covenant. This helps to explain the prominence of Moses in new pseudepigraphic works penned in the Hellenistic period, when the Mosaic law was challenged by Hellenizing rulers, as it helps to explain the prominence of Moses and the books associated with him at Qumran.
The son of a Levite man and woman, he became the foster-son of the daughter of Pharaoh, King of Egypt, during a time when the Israelites were enslaved there. He is called by God to organize a slave revolt and gain the Israelites' freedom from Pharaoh. He becomes the mediator between God and the people of Israel. He is known in Exodus, Deuteronomy, and in later Jewish tradition as the giver of the Law. His name means "[I was] drawn out."
Moses: considered one of the greatest prophets of the Jewish religion. Led the Jewish people out of slavery in Egypt. Climbed Mt. Sinai and spoke with GOD, the I Am That I Am, where Moses enountered the Burning Bush and GOD revealed his Holy Name and the Ten Commandments to the Jewish people. See Dr. Stone's book, The Golden Book of Melchizedek: How to Become an Integrated Christ/Buddha in This Lifetime, for the deeper esoteric understanding of the Ten Commandments! Led the Jewish people for 40 years through the desert. However, before the Promised Land was reached, he passed to the Spirit World and Joshua took over Spiritual Leadership of the Tribe of Israel. Interestingly, Joshua was an incarnation of the Master Jesus! The Jewish and Christian religions are more connected than people realize. This was also why Jesus was born into the Jewish religion and was a Jewish rabbi

One of the six great prophets, according to the Muhammadans. See Exodus 4:16, where God says to Moses: "thou shalt be to him instead of God"; and Exodus 7:1: "I have made thee a god to Pharoh." Moses led the exodus from Egypt, which is now dated about 1440 B.C.

A biblical lawgiver and writer of the Pentateuch, MOSES liberated the working slaves of Egypt and lead them between a large mirage near the Sinai desert and the "reed sea" that appeared as a "wall of water". While MOSES documented his exodus in the Old Testament, he was given commandments from GOD byway of a tabernacle "pillar of fire" apparatus and BURNING BUSH device. Believed by many to be the first worshiper of a monotheistic religion in an era when the art of worship included many idols and symbols of divine energy, MOSES represents the common holy leader in Hebraic, Christian and Islamic religions. MOSES also created the linear Hebrew alphabet from PHOENICIAN logograms by using a scripture method of writing. See BURNING BUSH and JESUS CHRIST.
