I know you are not talking to me but I am compelled to write this, did you HONESTLY believe that Moses got his name because he was pulled out of the
water when he was a child?
According to the bible (???)
Exodus 2:1-10 (King James Version)
1And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi.
2And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.
3And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and
she laid it in the flags by the river's brink.
4And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him.
5And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river's side; and when she saw the ark among
the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.
6And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews'
7Then said his sister to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee?
8And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child's mother.
9And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the women took the child, and
10And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew
him out of the water.
The bible tells us that the daughter of the Pharaoh himself has salvaged Moses and she even gave it a name and asked one of her slaves (allegedly
Moses' own mother) to take care of him.
And you believe all this BS? You really believe that the daughter of a Pharaoh would hold no grudge or anything like that against the Hebrews?
Remember they are the "elites" in that society, they treat slaves (Hebrews) like garbage in that time and you honestly believe she would save that
baby? Also if she ever did this thing I have no doubt that she would've been executed for this crime that she had done.
There is a reason and i suggest you read that you read this as it will put to rest some of your misconceptions about him being Egyptian. He
just had an Egyptian name
So you are telling us that it just happened?
It happens that Science sometimes brings new ways of seeing things, and Egyptology today shows a compelling probability that Moses was, in fact, the
masked figure of Akhnaton.
Now maybe you should try and read other books other than the *bible* because it is one of the heavily coded books about history, it is also very one
sided and if you honestly believe that then nothing cannot be done to help you.
