Overview

Moses is a major figure in Judaism, and one whose teachings have been respected by many other cultures. The Ten Commandments and other laws that Moses received from God on Mount Sinai helped to form the moral and legal framework for our modern civilization. Moses is the archetype of a great leader. He is driven by God's higher purpose, but at the same time he tries to protect members of his community from divine wrath. Throughout his life, Moses worked not to enrich himself at the expense of others, but to help all people to prosper. Millionaires of the Bible Series. The series Money at its Best: Millionaires of the Bible examines the lives of key figures from biblical history.
