The Prince of Egypt - The story of Moses
(Exodus chapters 1 to 14)
First Pharaoh made the Israelites to work for him as slaves and then he did something even more horrible! He ordered that every baby Israelite boy was to be killed by throwing them into the river Nile! Had God forgotten his people? They were in desperate need of a deliverer!
One woman hid her little baby son for three months, desperately hoping the Egyptians wouldn't find him. It got harder and harder to keep him hidden so she made him a basket and placed it in the river. The baby's sister kept watch over him and something amazing happened. Watch the video to find out!
Watch this short clip about Moses' mother trying to get him to safety
Wow! Pharaoh's own daughter found Moses and decided she would look after him. Do you want to know the best part? Moses' big sister was watching him all this time and offered to find a nurse for Pharaoh's daughter to help look after the baby. Guess who she went to get? Her mother! Pharaoh's daughter told Moses' mum to look after him and when he was old enough he went to live in the palace with Pharaoh's daughter.
