This week on the History for Christian Teens podcast, we discover how a baby escaped death by floating down the Nile River in a basket, then grew up to lead his people out of captivity.

Previously, we learned how Joseph was sold into slavery by his jealous brothers. Later in his life, through a series of events, he went on to save his family from starvation by bringing them to live near him in the land of Egypt.

It’s now somewhere around 300 years after the death of Joseph. The Hebrews have significantly grown in number and prospered in Egypt. However, since the time Joseph’s family resettled in the country, a new ruler has come into power who has forgotten how God raised Joseph up to save their people from starvation.

Worried by the growing numbers and prosperity of the Israelites, the new Pharaoh greatly oppressed them and worked them harder than ever. In an effort to stop the growing population, the new ruler commanded that the midwives kill all the Hebrew baby boys at birth. However, the midwives feared God more than man, and the Lord blessed the midwives for their faithfulness.

When Moses’ mother saw that her baby was beautiful, she hid him until she could hide him no longer. In desperation to save her son, she placed him in a basket and sent him down the Nile River. Pharaoh’s daughter found the baby and raised him as her son. Later, Moses would realize he was a Hebrew and see the oppression of his people by the Egyptian government. God would miraculously call him to lead the Israelites out of Egypt and save them from slavery.

We then tie everything together with three practice life application lessons that we can apply to our own lives as believers.

Next week- Please join us next time when we explore how a Biblical event reverberated throughout history and is even the current fundamental legal code of Western Civilization and the common law of the United States.
