Moses is the one man mentioned more often than any other man in the Scriptures. There is little doubt that the Children of Israel, who were miraculously led out of the bondage of Egypt by Almighty God, were familiar with the meaning of the name of Moses. Moses was drawn out of the Nile River by the daughter of pharaoh and adopted into the royal family at the same time that Israelites were slaves in Egypt. The name Moses bears witness to that miracle of deliverance from the water. Moses was appointed and given authority by God to accomplish his mission as revealed by God. Moses was a type of the coming Messiah, the Appointed One. Moses was appointed by God to deliver his people from the bondage of Egypt.
