The Main events in Moses Life....
Continue learning the eight events in Moses’ life by looking at event number
5), the ten plagues...background information:
After the Burning Bush (see last weeks lesson) Moses went to the Pharaoh and did as God asked. The Pharaoh refused and instead made life for the slaves of Egypt even harder by no longer giving them the materials to make the bricks and the homes but insisted they find the materials themselves. The slaves were left to search the land for straw and clay only to be beaten for not meeting their daily tasks each day. Moses was even more desperate and begged God to stop the Pharaoh from punishing his people even further. God said that the Pharaohs heart was hardened and so he began the plagues of Egypt, starting with the first where he turned the water of the Nile into blood using his staff.
Ask pupils to put themselves in the positions of Moses and Pharaoh after the eighth plague (locusts) and create a ‘conscience alley’ for each of these men.
• Moses’ conscience alley: give reasons for Moses to continue following God’s will and attempting to get the slaves released; also consider the other side stating reasons why Moses should give up.
• Pharaoh’s conscience alley: Again think of both, on one side give reasons why Pharaoh should keep the Hebrews as slaves, and on the other side give reasons why Pharaoh should grant their freedom.
