The Epic Story of God continues with the greatest miracle in the history of God’s people. Suffering as slaves, forsaken, Israel lived under the oppression of Egypt. It seemed like all of God’s promises were forgotten. When would freedom come?
The story of Moses reminds us of God’s power, protection and provision. An unlikely hero who spoke with God and for Him. Even still Moses — once forgotten, now free — plays a minor part in God’s Story, where Jesus is the Hero.

Week 7 of EPIC series (following the Hero of God’s Story)

22 By faith Joseph, at the end of his life, made mention of the exodus of the Israelites and gave directions concerning his bones.
23 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents, because they saw that the child was beautiful, and they were not afraid of the king’s edict. 24 By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, 25 choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. 26 He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward. 27 By faith he left Egypt, not being afraid of the anger of the king, for he endured as seeing him who is invisible. 28 By faith he kept the Passover and sprinkled the blood, so that the Destroyer of the firstborn might not touch them.
29 By faith the people crossed the Red Sea as on dry land, but the Egyptians, when they attempted to do the same, were drowned.
