The most influential film of the 1950s, The Ten Commandments reflected the union of Americans and Moses.
For Moses, the idealism of Freedom Summer was inseparable from the practical task of making it work.
In 2011 he was offered the role of Moses in Attack the Block.
Fifty year ago defining the goals of the Mississippi Summer Project was equally crucial for Moses.
Quite appropriately, Moses received a MacArthur Foundation “genius” award in 1982 for his work with the Algebra Project.
And it is difficult to suppose that Moses had not received a complete education.
"Let her out, Moses," I called to the engineer through the speaking-tube.
To what end did Moses lead this people through the wilderness?
And as Moses did lift up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of man be lift up.
Thus the testimony of Moses long before is identical with that of Paul.
masc. proper name, name of Hebrew prophet and lawgiver, from Latin, from Greek Mouses, from Hebrew Mosheh, of unknown origin.
Most scholars see in it the Hebraization of Egyptian mes, mesu 'child, son,' which is often used in theophorous names. According to this derivation the words of Pharaoh's daughter in Ex. 2:10, 'For out of the water I drew him' are not the explanation of the Hebrew name Mosheh, but express the idea that the Egyptian name given by Pharaoh's daughter resembles in sound, and therefore, reminds us of, the Hebrew verb mashah 'he drew out,' which is suggestive of the words spoken by Pharaoh's daughter.

The great leader, lawgiver, and prophet of the ancient Israelites (Hebrews). According to the Old Testament, Moses was born in Egypt, where the Hebrews were living as slaves. When Moses was an infant, the Egyptian ruler, or pharaoh, ordered all the male children of the Hebrews slain. Moses' mother placed him in a small boat made of bulrushes and hid him in a marsh, where he was found by the daughter of the pharaoh, who adopted him.
When Moses was a grown man, he killed an Egyptian who was beating a Hebrew and had to flee Egypt to escape punishment. One day, while Moses was living in exile, God spoke to him from a burning bush, commanding him to return to Egypt and bring the Hebrews out of bondage. Moses went back to Egypt and told the pharaoh of God's command; when the pharaoh refused to release the Hebrews from slavery, God sent the plagues of Egypt to afflict the Egyptians. The pharaoh finally relented, and Moses led his people out of Egypt across the Red Sea, on the journey that became known as the Exodus. Shortly afterward, Moses received the Ten Commandments from God on Mount Sinai. Moses and his people wandered in the wilderness for forty years; then, just as they came within sight of the Promised Land, Moses died.
