The paper outlines the circumstances of Moses' birth and infancy and how they find echoes in the birth of Jesus. The paper focuses on the information in the Bible concerning Moses' childhood and highlights how Moses is the prime example of a somewhat unusual but remarkably honest depiction of humanity. The paper compares the personalities of Moses and Jesus and points out that their personalities were not exactly equal. The paper concludes that the lessons of human imperfection are universal, and appear throughout both testaments of the Bible.

From the Paper:

"Moses' story starts, of course, with his birth. This occurred at a time of especially tense relationships between the Pharaoh and the Hebrew slave population. A decree had been issued that all male infants born to the Hebrews would be killed, in an effort to curb the population growth occurring among the slaves and as another means of keeping the slaves in line and destitute. Moses' mother quite understandably did not want him dead, and managed to keep him hidden away from the Egyptian soldiers for three full months before finally deciding something else had to be done. She carefully made a basket out of reeds, lined the outside with pitch so that it would be watertight, and set it afloat on the Nile with the baby Moses bundled up safely inside. Moses sister, Miriam, watched the basket to ensure the future leader's safety."
