23. We were heads of two of the twelve tribes of Israel, the only two not born in Canaan. Who are we? 46:20, Manasseh and Ephraim, sons of Joseph born in Egypt (see 41:45-52, Manasseh sounds like Hebrew “cause to forget” and Ephraim sounds like Hebrew word for “fruitful”)

25. Once Jacob arrived in Egypt, how many members of his family were with him? 46:26-27, Seventy direct descendants (not counting his sons’ wives)

30. Before he died in Egypt, Joseph asked his brothers to give a solemn vow that they would do what? 50:25, when God takes them back to the Promised Land in Canaan, take his body with them. (see Exodus 13:19 for fulfillment of vow)

Exodus 1:1—6:13

1. How did the Israelites become slaves instead of honored guests in Egypt? 1:8-14, multiplied and seen as threat to new king

2. We were ordered by Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, to kill all male Hebrew babies, but because we feared God, we refused. Who are we? Ex. 1:15, Hebrew midwives Shiphrah and Puah

3. I found a baby boy in a reed basket, floating in the Nile river. I adopted the boy and named him Moses (which sounds like the Hebrew term which means “to draw out”). Who am I? 2:5-10, one of Pharaoh’s daughters

4. Moses’ Hebrew parents were from which tribe of Israel? 2:1, Levi

5. When Moses was about 40 years old, the Pharaoh called for his arrest and execution. What did Moses do that caused him to have to flee for his life out across the desert? 2:11-12, killed and buried an Egyptian who was beating a Hebrew slave

6. As the priest of Midian, I became Moses’ father-in-law. I went by two names. Can you tell me one of them? 2:21, Reuel and 3:1, Jethro

7. I am known by two names, Horeb and Sinai. What am I? 3:1, a mountain, often called the “mountain of God”

8. What was it about the burning bush that first caught Moses’ attention? 3:2-3, it burned but was not burned up. (Two lessons from the bush: First, there was not anything special about the bush itself—any one of the millions would have worked—but God’s presence made it special. Also, like a Christian who lives in the power of the Holy Spirit, we burn brightly but are not consumed.

9. In Ex. 3:6, God said to Moses, “I am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” Many centuries later, how did Jesus use this statement to demonstrate to the Saducees that there is resurrection and life after death? Mt. 22:32, Jesus noted that God spoke in present tense, “I am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob”, and since they had died long before, then they must be alive again, since God is the God of the living, not the dead.

10. When Moses spoke to the people of Israel and to the Pharaoh, what name was he supposed to use for the God who sent him? Ex. 3:14, “I AM” (the eternal, self-existent God)

11. To his amazement, God told Moses that He would not only deliver Israel out of Egypt, but that they would leave with much of Egypt’s wealth! How would they get these riches from the Egyptians? 3:21-22, they would simply ask for and be given things as gifts. Thus, they would “plunder” Egypt. (Try to “hear” this from Moses perspective, knowing what he knew of both the power of Egypt and the helplessness of the Hebrews situation.)

12. I am the common wooden tool of a shepherd, but I became a snake to encourage Moses and demonstrate that he spoke on God’s behalf. What am I? 4:2-4, Moses’ staff

13. At first, Moses refused God’s call, insisting that someone else would have to deliver Israel. Why? Ex. 4:10, because he was not a good speaker!

14. While God spoke to my brother in the desert, He also spoke to me in Egypt and sent me to help him. Who am I? 5:27, Aaron

15. When Moses first told the Pharaoh to let the Israelites go, it only made matters worse. How? 5:6, Pharaoh increased their workload (had to gather the straw instead of being supplied with it, to meet the same “quota” for finished bricks)
