He is the hero in the books of Exodus through Deuteronomy. His name meant he was draw out from the water. He was best known for how he saved The Israelites from slavery and especially for the first Passover. He was born to a Jewish woman named Jocheved, who had had 2 other children named Miriam and Aaron. She had hidden him in a basket and sent it by a river so that he wouldn't be killed under The Pharaoh's orders.

He was then saved by the Egyptian princess named Bithiah, who had taken turns with his real mother raising him. Moses grew up in the palace.
