894 Steinbach Nutcracker Moses
There is no arguing in fact that Moses
was one of the greatest religious founders in the history of the world.
The story of Moses is handed down to us from the Old Testament of the
Bible. It tells how Moses formed a convenant between God and the people
of Israel based on the monotheistic belief in Yahweh.
It also tells of how Moses was placed
into a reed-basket on the river Nile as a newborn babe how he was
discovered by the daughter of King Pharaoh and adopted by her. This is
how Moses came to learn the wisdom of the ancient Egyptians. In the
desert of the Madianites by the burning bush, God commanded him to lead
the people of Israel out of slavery from Egypt to freedom. He promised
them a new land where milk and honey flowed. This journey lasted over 40
years. The passage led them past Mount Sinai (Horeb), which Moses
ascended alone. It was here that God gave to Moses the central tenets of
the Old Testament: the Ten Commandments, thereby creating the social,
cultural and moral code for the people of Israel.
These Ten Commandments are still
preserved to this day within Christianity although subject to a somewhat
different interpretation according to the gospels. Dr. Martin Luther,
one of the leaders of the Reformation placed less of an emphasis on the
significance of the Ten Commandments. He disputed the notion that man
could achieve salvation before God by only obeying the letter of the law
of the Ten Commandments. For the Protestants, understanding the lessons
taught in the Gospels, their significance and meaning, i. e. the spirit
of the law, is believed to be more important for achieving salvation
