MOSES, LIBERATOR AND LAW
LESSON TEXT ? Exodus 14:10. l3"2^
GOLDEN TEXT ? Fear ye not. Stand
still and see the salvation of the lord.
? Exodas 14:13.
REFERENCE MATERIAL ? Deuter
onomy 3:23-28; Psalm 116:23-46; Matthew
17:3; Acts 7:17-44; Hebrews 11:23-29
PRIMARY TOPIC ? Moses the Boy
Whoty God Saved.
JUNIOR TOPIQ ? Moses Leads Israel
Through the Red Sea.
INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOP
IC? Moses the Great Leader.
YOUNG PEOPLC AND ADULT TOP
IC ? The Character of Moses. N
I The Birth, Preservation and Edu
cation of Moses. (Exodus 8:1-8).
1. His Birth (vv. 1-2). His parents
were of the tribe of Levi.
2. His Preservation (vv. 3-8). The
faith of his parents caused them to ig
nore the command of the king and
they hid him for three months (He
brews 11 :23). His mother discerned In
him a proper child, or a child fair to
God (Acts 7:20), and believed him to
be the deliverer of his people. Perhaps
led by the story of Noah's ark, she
made him an ark of bulrushes and
placed Moses in It and left It at the
place where Pharaoh's daughter would
be attracted when she came down to
bathe. Miriam, his sister, was placed
where she could watch the affair, and
at the opportune moment she came
with a suggestion of a nurse for the
baby; securing her consent, Miriam
brought the child's mother.
3. His Education (vv. 9-10). He was
educated first at his mother's knee, the
place where his character was formed.
He was also educated at the Egyptian
court, where he became acquainted
with the wisdom of Egypt (Acts 7 :22).
II. The Call of Mcses (Exodus 3).
1. The Lord Speaks From the Bush
(vv. 1-6). In the desert the Lord ap
peared in the vision of the burning
bush. When Moses stepped aside to
behold this strange thing God taught
him the lesson of proper approach un
2. The Lord Commissions Moses (vv.
7-10). God assured him of his active
Interest in his peopJe, having seen their
affliction, heard their cry, and known
their sorrows, and that he had com?
down to deliver them from the hand
of the Egyptian through Moses as His
III. Moses' Contest With Pharaoh
(Exodus T>-12). The tea plagues reveal
the contest carried on between Moses
and Pharaoh before the people were
set free. The tenth stroke from the
strong hand of the Almighty made
Pharaoh willing to let Israel go.
IV. Israel Crossing the Red Sea (Bx
od ua 14:10, 13-22).
1. Israel's Straitened Circumstances
(v. 10). At the Lord's direction
they changed from their first course
and were apparently in great difficulty.
The Bed sea was before them; the
mountains on either 6ide. Pharaoh
with his chariots of war was closing
In upon them. In their distress they
cried to the Lord.
2. Israel's Miraculous Escape (vv.
13-22.) tl) Moses' words to the people
(w. 13-14). (a) "Fear not." Since God
was leading them by day and by night
with the pillar of cloud and fire they
had, no need of fear, even If they were
In straitened circumstances. (b)
"Stand still." Standing still In such a ?
trial Is faith taking hold of God's prom
ise. (c) "See the salvation of the
Lord." "The Lord shall fight for you."
(2) God's words to Moses (vv. 15-18).
(a) "Go forward." No use to pray
longer when God scf s "Move forward."
(b) "Lift up thy rod." This served as
something tangible upon which their
faith could rest. They were to go
through the sea on dry ground. But
the symbol of God's presence now
passed to the rear to hold the enemy
at bay. (3) The divided sea (w. 21
22). As they went forward the very
tiding which they feared became a wall
of protection on either side.
8. Overthrow of the Egyptians (vv.
22-27). Having seen the Israelites go
across dry shod the Egyptians Immedi
ately pursued them, Insanely thinking
that they could follow In the wake of
God's children. That which was a pro
tection to God's children became an In
strument of destruction to the Egyp
tians. > ,) ?
4. Israel's Song of Triumph (15:1
21). They attributed their deliverance
and the overwhelming defeat of their
enemies to God. They could well sing
their song of triumph, f<Sr they were
on the other shore.
V. The Law Given (Exodus 20:1-17).
God gave through Moses to the world a
complete code of laws setting forth
duties to (j|od and man.

Rather Embarrassing, However, the

Discussed the Idea.

He and our little tour-year-old
daughter, Ruth, became friends. He
always tried to get her to call him
"Uncle Frank." . -
I remarked to my husband I would
teach her to call him uncle if I
thought he would leave her something
in his will.
One evening In the midst of our
