Moses was supposedly found in bullrushes by an Egyptian princess and was raised as part of the Egyptian royal family.

When Moses saw a guard beating up a Jewish slave, why didn’t Moses, as a member of the Egyptian royal family, just order the guard to stop?  Why did he have to kill the guard?  And even if he did kill the guard, didn’t royalty have the right to kill whoever they wanted to?

Look at European royalty until modern times; they could imprison, torture, and kill whoever they wanted to. I imagine Egyptian royalty would have the same rights.

It just doesn’t add up.

Of course not. Moses is a messiah myth. He never existed. The Exodus story is a tall tale of Israeli history. Kind of like Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox in Minnesota folk lore.

You are not trying to make real sense of this are you? grin

Don’t believe Satan’s lies. Just accept God’s word for the wonderful and beautiful literature that it is. The truth will be revealed in your heart if you accept Jesus and ask him to enter your heart.

Moses and Jesus are saying two separate things, and Paul is saying something different still. I’m curious as to how anyone is supposed to understand Moses by finding Jesus.
