The Israelites were living in Egypt for some time before the new pharaoh decided to enslave them to weaken their power and numbers. It was a terrible time for the God’s chosen people, and was made even worse when Pharaoh decreed that any baby boy born to an Israelite should be killed. Jochebed, an Israelite slave, had a baby boy named Moses. In order to save her son, she placed him in a basket and set him floating down the Nile River, with his older sister, Miriam, watching over him. The baby was saved, however, by an Egyptian princess, who gave him the name he’d carry into the desert, leading his people out of bondage and up a mountain to receive God’s laws for his people.
The story of baby Moses, his journey down the Nile, and his growth into a man who would lead God’s chosen people out of Egypt is a timeless, important story about faith, love, and redemption. Now, for the first time, this epic story comes to life as part of The Brick Bible for Kids series. Enjoy reading one of the Bible’s most colorful stories illustrated in LEGO as a family.
