That Burning Bush Experience

Illus #1: The children of Israel were in bondage in Egypt. They were multiplying so fast the Pharaoh made a law that every male child must be thrown in the river and drown Lets go to the Word of God to continue this story

Text: Exodus 2 1-10

A man from the Levi tribe married a woman from the same tribe, 2 and she later had a baby boy. He was a beautiful child, and she kept him inside for three months. 3 But when she could no longer keep him hidden, she made a basket out of reeds and covered it with tar. She put him in the basket and placed it in the tall grass along the edge of the Nile River. 4 The baby’s older sister[a] stood off at a distance to see what would happen to him.

5 About that time one of the king’s[b] daughters came down to take a bath in the river, while her servant women walked along the river bank. She saw the basket in the tall grass and sent one of the young women to pull it out of the water. 6 When the king’s daughter opened the basket, she saw the baby and felt sorry for him because he was crying. She said, “This must be one of the Hebrew babies.”

7 At once the baby’s older sister came up and asked, “Do you want me to get a Hebrew woman to take care of the baby for you?”

8 “Yes,” the king’s daughter answered.

So the girl brought the baby’s mother, 9 and the king’s daughter told her, “Take care of this child, and I will pay you.”

The baby’s mother carried him home and took care of him. 10 And when he was old enough, she took him to the king’s daughter, who adopted him. She named him Moses[c]because she said, “I pulled him out of the water.”
