This first part of the story of Moses covers his life up until God spoke to him from a burning bush. God revealed that he had chosen Moses to lead the Israelites out of slavery into freedom in a good and spacious land.
Moses approached Pharaoh in fear and trepidation, but this story shows that God was in control and would do anything to free his chosen people.
Even after being freed, Pharaoh tried one more time to get the Israelites back to Egypt, but in this amazing story God once again showed his miraculous power to fulfil his plan.
