Exodus 2:10 - Why did you get your name?
Moses was a Hebrew raised in the household of the Pharaoh of Egypt. He followed the call of God to free the Hebrew slaves held in Egypt and then lead them through the wilderness to the Promised Land. As people emerging from a pandemic wilderness, we can learn a lot from Moses’s story. It teaches us how to be a stronger community and a people of hope in an age when people seem more disconnected and worried than ever.
This week, we are digging into the meaning of the name, “Moses.” Exodus 2:10 seems to give us a clear explanation for his naming, but there are multiple layers under the surface that are easy to miss in English. His name involves meanings in Hebrew as well as Egyptian that tell us more than we would gather from a surface reading of the text.
