  Moses and Pharaoh. Question: What did the Lord mean when He said Moses would become “god to Pharaoh”? And how did the symbolism of the plagues undermine the worship of the Egyptian gods? Summary: Surprisingly, Exodus does not say that Moses was to be “like a god” to Pharaoh. Rather, the Lord’s words to the prophet in Hebrew read. Moses is a perplexing historical character. And, yes, I say “historical,” because I believe there is not reason to doubt his existence in real history simply because he is predominantly mentioned in books of faith. But even more perplexing than Moses, is the event inextricably linked to his name: the [ ]Author: Scotty Roberts.

  God then plagued Pharaoh on account of her, while Abram received many gifts from Pharaoh and the Egyptians. Discovering that Sarai was Abram’s wife, Pharaoh commanded Abram to leave. Abram returned to Canaan, where the Promised Land was divided between him and Lot and God instructed him to walk throughout the land, as God would give it to him. Both of these books are beautifully writen and a little bit philosophical or at least, make you think about the meaning of power and life in general. If you're looking for more action-based novels, I'd recommend Wilbur Smith's series. It starts with "River God". A very enjoyable read but more of an adventure novel set in Egypt than a historical.

Pharaoh's people had now given up on Pharaoh as a god. They saw that Moses' truth was real truth. They came and bowed down to Moses, as if he were the king. They realized the God that Moses represented was the true God. Moses had finally gotten angry. Moses prophesied that Pharaoh and his people would ask the Israelites to get out of the land. Question: "Who was the Pharaoh of the Exodus?" Answer: The name most commonly associated with the Pharaoh of the Exodus is Ramses (often spelled as Ramesses or Rameses). This is the name used in movies such as The Ten Commandments, The Prince of Egypt, and Exodus: Gods and this connection may be common in pop culture, the Bible doesn’t give an explicit name for this ruler.
