Lesson Topic - Birth of Moses/God’s Calling for Children
Memory Verse: PSALM 121:2 MY HELP COMES FROM THE LORD, THE MAKER OF HEAVEN AND EARTH.
Objective: PARENTS! The children will learn about who Moses was, the meaning of his name, God’s calling for him and the importance of him being rescued from death as a baby.
Lesson: Last week we celebrated and learned about Jesus’ Resurrection and why we celebrate it. Did you know that similar to Jesus, Moses was also rescued from death as a baby? Around that time, Pharaoh had commanded for all newborn Hebrew boys to be killed because he was afraid that they would grow up and side with tribes who were enemies of Egypt. When Moses was born, his mother Jochebed hid him for three months. When she could no longer hide him, she took a basket, put him inside and placed the basket in the Nile River. His sister watched from a distance to see what would happen to him.
Then the Pharaoh's daughter was bathing on the river and she saw the basket and had one of her handmaidens bring it to her. She opened it and saw Moses who was crying. She felt sorry and had compassion for him because she knew he was a Hebrew baby and not Egyptian. Moses’ sister asked Pharaoh's daughter if she should get one of the Hebrew women to take care of Moses and she agreed. That Hebrew woman happened to be Moses’ mother. When Moses’ got older, his mother brought him back to Pharaoh's daughter and she took him in and named him “Moses” which means “draw out of the water” in Hebrew and “son” in Egyptian.
God had a special calling for Moses who would later lead the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt to take them to the Promised Land. In Exodus 2:2, Moses is described as a “fine child” meaning that he looked good in the eyes of God and his mother knew this, which is why she hid him. If Moses wasn’t rescued, the Israelites would have not been free. Be encouraged and know that God has a special calling in your life.
Our bible verse of the month says “My help comes from the Lord” and in this lesson, God protected Moses when he was in the basket on the river.
Pharaoh commanded for all newborn Hebrew boys to be killed
Moses’ mom, Jochebed, knew that Moses was special baby and that’s why she rescued him by hiding him from three months and putting him in a basket on the Nile River.
The Hebrew meaning of “Moses” is to draw out of the water
Moses would eventually grow up and lead the children of Israel out of slavery in Egypt.
Questions to Ask Your Children:
