Moses was a Hebrew born in Egypt about 3400 years ago. He received a formal education and led his fellow Hebrews out of Egypt to the border of Canaan, which later became Israel. He is credited with having written the first five books of the Bible - of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy - which are sometimes called the "Books of Moses" or the "Pentateuch." Many Bible critics have challenged the claim that Moses actually wrote the first five books. But what they cannot challenge is what they can see with their own eyes - that Moses' prophecies about the exile and worldwide scattering of the Hebrews, the unbelievable persecutions, culminating with a restoration of Israel are all visibly, provably, fulfilled in modern times.
