Transcript of Abraham and Moses

Abraham This Abraham.
Abraham was the first ever Monotheist. A Monotheist is a
religious man/woman
who believes in only one
god. In those times Abraham was considered crazy because before Abraham spoke about his beliefs everyone else believed that there were many gods. This part of the presentation will teach you some weird and wonderful facts about Abraham (the founder of Judaism) and Moses This presentation will teach you about: his clothing, his stories, his food,his music, his Jobs, where he traveled, his transportation, his customs and his traditions. So lets talk about
Abraham shall we! Abraham first thought that the Sun was the one almighty god as nothing was brighter. But as the sun dimmed down over night he realised that the sun can not be one god as the moon is 'obviously' more powerful. He then realised that the sun could not be the one god and neither could the moon so he prayed to the heavens and realised that the one god is everywhere as he is the god of all creation! Abraham is considered a Great Leader but why? Abraham was considered to be a Great Leader as he was brave enough to be a Monotheist, also to stand up to everyone and tell them 'There is only one god and you should worship him and no-one else for he is the God of creation! Their clothing was very different when Abraham was
The men mainly wore long robes. Whereas the
Women would usually were long dresses. Abraham always carried around a Large
staff to symbolize his power and to
show that he was the leader of the group! The Food was not as different to
now. They would have ate roasted meat and they would have drank curds of milk (Roughly translated from Genesis 18:8). This is a curd of milk. This is roasted meat. Wait! Not that Abraham! Abraham's story Life: Transportation The transportation we have now is much different to the transportation they had. The way they traveled around was by donkeys or by foot! The Jobs! Moses His Story When Moses was born the Hebrews were slaves in Egypt. The pharaoh was afraid of them because he thought they might take over his country.So he ordered that all the Hebrew baby boys be killed at birth so that they would not grow up and fight against him. To save Moses his mother made a plan. She hid him in a basket by the side of the River Nile. Moses' sister Miriam watched over him until Pharaoh's daughter came to the river to wash. She found Moses in his basket. Miriam told her she knew a woman who could be a nurse for the baby until he was a bit older. It was his mother. When he was older the pharaoh's daughter took him back to live with her as though he were her son. Afterward Farmer Harvester Warrior Leader Hunter Carpenter Music Next lets talk about Moses But wait who's Moses? Why was Moses considered a great leader Because of his smarts, his bravery there are many things that make him a great leader.
But his courage and determination was one of his strongest attributes for example: The Modern day clarinet was based on the traditional Jewish Pipes! The Modern day bagpipes were based on the traditional Jewish dulcimer! The Modern day trumpet was based on the traditional Jewish horn! Traditional Jewish Lyre (harps) used
to be made from the shell of a turtle! Goat skin would be used to make
traditional drum skins! The systrim would be played
with the hand! Moses was brought up as a egyptian but was really jewish and so when his fellow jews were mistreated by the guard he had to act.
He was brave for standing up for what he believed in. Clothing: Like Abraham Moses and his followers would also mainly wear long robes and the woman would usually wear long dresses. k Food: Moses and the Israelite s would often eat the kinda foods we would eat for example Bread



And they would eat their cattle
(Cows) This part of the presentation will teach you some weird and wonderful facts about Abraham (the founder of Judaism) and Moses This presentation will teach you about: his clothing, his stories, his food,his music, his Jobs, where he traveled, his transportation, his customs and his traditions. Music: Music for Abraham and Moses were practically the same back then They used: Jewish pipes Dulcimer (Bagpipes) Horn Lyre (Harp) Drum Systrim Jobs: The sort of jobs they would have back then were: The Leader (Moses) Market owners Hunters Farmers Warrior Tailor (Carpenter) Where he traveled Moses traveled all over but unfortunately did not reach his destination He started of in Egypt where he punished the egyptian
king for his lack of hospitality towards the jewish
slaves. He commanded that the king let the jews go but
the king didn't listen so Moses released the ten plagues upon the Egyptian kingdom. Plagues: 1. He turned the river to blood 2. He released frogs into the city 3. He plagued the city with lice 4. He plagued the city with flies 5. He killed all of the Egyptians livestock 6. He plagued the Egyptians with boils making them deathly ill 7. He cursed Egypt with terrible weather
(Thunder and hail) 8. He swarmed Egypt with Locusts 9. He forced Egypt into darkness 10. He killed all firstborns including the Pharaohs
own son. Which made him so distressed he released the Jews Moses is mostly famous for what he did to help the Jews escape the Pharaohs rage As the egyptian army was chasing them Moses needed a quick escape route from them so with the power of God he parted the red sea so him and his disciples could cross As the egyptians were crossing the water, Moses
and God closed the gap in the water causing it to
crush and drown the egyptian army leaving the
Jews safe. One tradition is that there is a special place that
they could travel to that could give them salvation. "The Promised Land" On the way there Moses went up to mt. Sinai and collected the ten commandments which were: 1. You shall have no other Gods but me.
2. You shall not make for yourself any idol, nor bow down to it or worship it.
3. You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God.
4. You shall remember and keep the Sabbath day holy.
5. Respect your father and mother.
6. You must not kill.
7. You must not commit adultery. (Affair)
8. You must not steal.
9. You must not give false evidence against your neighbor.
10. You must not envy. When he got back down to his disciples he flew into a
blinding rage because they had defied the commandments and had built a gold idol and was worshiping it. After that Moses and his most trusted disciples
followed him all the way to the promised land where he
sat outside at his final resting place. In the end Moses wasn't allowed
into the promised land because
he had broken one of the laws of
God when he killed the entire
Egyptian army in the red sea. Thanks for watching
:D :D Life: Life wasn't that different for Abraham and Moses.
