Moses from the Author: Theodore H. Epp. Moses' life, from his infancy to his death, is one of the most well-documented of any person in the Bible. He was called "Moses the man of God" and "Moses the servant of the Lord." Though God miraculously used him to lead the entire nation of Israel in its exodus out of slavery in Egypt--the world's most powerful nation at the time--Scripture says Moses was the most humble man of his day. What an amazing man and life to learn from! Author Theodore Epp writes, "Yet, Moses was just like any other man. Although he had great qualities that needed to be developed and improved, he had many flaws and deficiencies that would have made him powerless except for the all-sufficient grace that he eventually learned to appropriate." Volume 1 - God Prepares and Strengthens His Man covers Moses' life from his birth to the crossing of the Red Sea, giving practical lessons on how God prepared His servant for the gigantic task ahead of him, and how God can prepare you too for service to Him. Volume 2 - Excellence in Leadership covers Moses' life from Israel's exodus from Egypt to the doorstep of the promised land of Canaan, illustrating many aspects of the Christian life of faith, testing, growth, service, and true leadership qualities.

Royal Motifs In The Pentateuchal Portrayal Of Moses from the Author: Danny Mathews. Moses is portrayed through the use of royal motifs, such as his abandonment at birth, flight from Pharaoh, portrayal as a shepherd, as a semi-divine figure, temple builder, military general, and lawgiver. These well-known motifs that have been typically used to depict four famous rulers in the ancient Near East, Hammurabi, Esarhaddon, Nabonidus, and Cyrus, have been adapted by the authors of the Pentateuch to affirm Moses as a more ancient leader, whose work has resulted in the constitution of the community of Israel. As a result, Israel's identity and enduring existence rest upon the authority and legacy of Moses.

The First 2 000 Years from the Author: W. Cleon Skousen. Much about the early history of mankind had become entirely lost until the restoration of the gospel. These details about the first 2,000 years of human history are all to be found in this exciting volume. We now know that Adam and Eve had two generations of children before Cain and Abel were born. The exact year of the Great Flood can now be calculated. Details about the golden age of Enoch are now available so that we can understand how the law of consecration works and how it eliminates poverty and crime. One of the most magnificent stories in this book is the life of Abraham. He received revelations about astronomy and mathematics which he later taught the Egyptians. He was a remarkable example of faith and obedience, even in offering his own son as a sacrifice to the God he loved. All of these tremendously important new revelations belong to the sweeping panorama of the first 2,000 years of human history. This book is designed to make the study of the Old Testament an inspirational pleasure. Although presented for easy reading, the text is carefully documented so that every important point can be correlated with appropriate passages in the scriptures. The extensive use of maps, charts and illustrations also facilitate the rapid unfolding of the Biblical story. This eBook includes the original index, footnotes, table of contents and page numbering from the printed format.

Moses In The Holy Scriptures Of Judaism Christianity And Islam from the Author: Osman Elhadary. Jews, Christians, and Muslims are all descendants of Abraham (Ibrahim), one man and three religions – See Chart 2. Most of us follow the religion of our parents and grandparents. Religion has been a matter of family tradition. Traditions are changing, and we change with them. Hate must be stopped between Jews, Christians, and Muslims, and must be replaced by respect, love, and peace. The purpose of this book is to motivate Jews, Christians, and Muslims to understand the religion of each other. I recommend Interfaith Dialogue Meetings as a way to assist in this understanding. Jews, Christians, and Muslims can live together in harmony if they respect one another. In order to achieve this aim, I have chosen Moses as the central figure of this book because he is a great figure in the scriptures of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Part one is about Moses in the Bible. Most non-Judeo-Christian readers are not familiar with the Bible. That is why information about the Bible is presented. Part two is about Moses in the Qur'an, the Holy Book of the Muslims. Most non-Muslim readers have limited knowledge of the Qur'an. That is why information about the Qur'an is presented. Part three presents the views of historians and modern thinkers on Moses and religions. Part one, two, and three are informative. Therefore, they are useful for educational purposes. After reading these three parts, the readers may want to take time to think about what is the truth. Part four is a search for the truth. Part five is a call for peace, ending with the Epilogue. This is a research book based on the study of comparative religions, the history of ancient Egypt, and the views of ancient and modern historians and thinkers. This research took most of my time during the last ten years. I gained significant knowledge from this research. I believe that life is a continuous quest for knowledge. This is an unbiased presentation. I have attempted to be as objective and neutral as possible in my writings. To keep my commitment of neutrality to the readers, I did not use "Pbuh", which means "Peace be upon him", after the name of each prophet, because this symbol is used by Muslims only.

Unreliable Witnesses from the Author: Ross Shepard Kraemer. In her latest book, Ross Shepard Kraemer shows how her mind has changed or remained the same since the publication of her ground-breaking study, Her Share of the Blessings: Women's Religions Among Pagans, Jews and Christians in the Greco-Roman World (OUP 1992). Unreliable Witnesses scrutinizes more closely how ancient constructions of gender undergird accounts of women's religious practices in the Greco-Roman Mediterranean. Kraemer analyzes how gender provides the historically obfuscating substructure of diverse texts: Livy's account of the origins of the Roman Bacchanalia; Philo of Alexandria's envisioning of idealized, masculinized women philosophers; rabbinic debates about women studying Torah; Justin Martyr's depiction of an elite Roman matron who adopts chaste Christian philosophical discipline; the similar representation of Paul's fictive disciple, Thecla, in the anonymous Acts of (Paul and) Thecla; Severus of Minorca's depiction of Jewish women as the last hold-outs against Christian pressures to convert, and others. While attentive to arguments that women are largely fictive proxies in elite male contestations over masculinity, authority, and power, Kraemer retains her focus on redescribing and explaining women's religious practices. She argues that - gender-specific or not - religious practices in the ancient Mediterranean routinely encoded and affirmed ideas about gender. As in many cultures, women's devotion to the divine was both acceptable and encouraged, only so long as it conformed to pervasive constructions of femininity as passive, embodied, emotive, insufficiently controlled and subordinated to masculinity. Extending her findings beyond the ancient Mediterranean, Kraemer proposes that, more generally, religion is among the many human social practices that are both gendered and gendering, constructing and inscribing gender on human beings and on human actions and ideas. Her study thus poses significant questions about the relationships between religions and gender in the modern world.

Endowed From On High from the Author: John D. Charles. The Endowment is a re-enactment of scriptural images and symbols. It is literally a gift - a gift of God's power. While carefully maintaining the sacred confidentiality of the temple ordinances, this book provides scriptural correlations which will open up rich new ares of understanding. Once you read this inspired information, you will be better informed about the scriptural authority and symbolism of the sacred ordinances. You will be better prepared and motivated to apply scriptural symbols in your life and strive to become more like Christ.Within these pages are more than twenty scriptural symbols which correlate with the temple service. the central focus of these symbols is found in Brigham Young's oft-quoted statement of the ceremony's ultimate purpose: to enable recipients to pass by the angelic sentinels who guard the entrance to God's kingdom as they walk back to the presence of the Father.Endowed from on high teaches that revelation occurs during the endowment, that promises are required before blessings are granted, that covenants are the channels through which blessings flow, and that the Lord is voluntarily bound when we obey His commandments. This is a unique and reverential guide to growth in the most sacred of all areas of our relationship with the Savior and our heavenly Father. Reading and pondering Endowed from on High will be a choice experience for all Church members.
