Moses on Justice: Fairness and Equality in the Law


Moses is a significant figure in both Judaism and Christianity, considered a prophet and leader who played a crucial role in the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. According to the Bible, Moses was born to Hebrew parents in Egypt and was adopted by Pharaoh's daughter. After killing an Egyptian slave driver, he fled to the wilderness, where he encountered God in the form of a burning bush and was commanded to return to Egypt and free his people. Moses confronted Pharaoh and performed miracles, including the parting of the Red Sea, to convince him to release the Israelites. After their liberation, Moses led the Israelites through the desert for 40 years, receiving the Ten Commandments from God on Mount Sinai and establishing a covenant with God that would shape Jewish and Christian beliefs for millennia to come.
