Storyboard Text

  • A man from the tribe of Levi married a woman of his own tribe and she bore him a son
  • It was during the time the Pharaoh had ordered all newborn male Hebrew babies to be killed; so they hid the baby for three months
  • You must kill every newborn male Hebrew baby; that way they cannot overthrow us!
  • When the baby could not be hid any longer, his mother placed him in a basket made of reeds that was covered with tar so it was watertight. The basket was placed among the grass at the banks of the Nile and left to float. His sister would keep watch from a distance.
  • The Pharaoh's daughter happened to notice the basket as she was along the banks bathing. She took the crying baby out and felt sorry for him. Her servant recognized he was Hebrew. His sister offered to find someone to nurse the baby.
  • Please do.
  • Shall I go call a Hebrew woman to nurse the baby for you?
  • This is one of the Hebrew babies.
  • So his sister went and brought his own mother.
  • Take this baby and nurse him for me, and I will pay you.
  • I pulled him out of the water, and so I name him Moses.
  • Later, when he was old enough, his mother took him to the Pharaoh's daughter. She adopted him as her own son.
