Answer: Daniel in the lion's den
The story of Moses, from beginning to end, is one of the most compelling in all of the Bible. The name "Exodus" comes from the ancient Greek word "exodos" which means "going out". In modern times it is often used as a term for leaving, as in "There was a mass exodus from the building when the fire alarm sounded". The story of Daniel in the lion's den can be found in the Book of Daniel, Chapter 6.
Answer: The more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread
See Exodus 1:11-14. The Egyptians' plan in making the Israelites work harder was to prevent them increasing in numbers and becoming a threat (vv8-10). The plan backfired, because it had the opposite effect.
They may have complained or praised God, but this is not mentioned. It is unlikely that slave labourers would be able to work to rule.

Answer: The plague of blood
Moses and Aaron turned the water of the river of Egypt into blood in front of Pharaoh. The magicians also tried to turn water into blood but were unsuccessful. This plague lasted for seven days.
Answer: Pithom and Raamses
Exodus 1:11- "Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with there burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and
Moses - who was led by the holy spirit - is the person who is traditionally credited with writing the first five books of the Bible.
Answer: Ignored her mother and stayed out with Adam.
The Commandments tell readers to honor their mother and father. This means to obey them, and treat them with respect. (Exodus 20:12)
"All those who were descendants of Jacob were seventy persons (for Joseph was in Egypt already). And Joseph died, all his brothers, and all that generation. But the children of Israel were fruitful and increased abundantly, multiplied and grew exceedingly mighty; and the land was filled with them." (Exodus 1:5-7)
It had been over 400 years since the Israelites had first come to Egypt and they now numbered about two million people. Pharaoh was fearful of their growing strength and put taskmasters over them and made them slaves.
Because temporary affliction and repentance don't bring long term change in the stubborn hearts of man, Pharaoh's heart was hardened after relief from all of the plagues, even the tenth which left pain and heartache on his entire kingdom. Exodus 8:13,16 hold the answer to the question: "And the Lord did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields ... And the Lord said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout the land of Egypt."
In Exodus 2:20-21, Reuel welcomed Moses for his kindness and protection of his daughters. In verse 21 the Bible recorded that Moses dwelt with him, and was given Zipporah as his wife. In Exodus 3:1, just prior to Moses' first encounter with God, the Bible recorded this - "Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb."
Answer: 3 months
Due to Pharaoh's edict to kill the male Hebrew babies, Moses' mother hid him as long as possible before putting him afloat in a basket, eventually to be found and raised by Pharaoh's daughter. The man God used to bring down the house of Pharaoh was to be raised and educated in his own house. Exodus 2:2 stated Moses' mother hid him for three months.
Answer: 7 days
Through Moses and Aaron, God turned the Nile and all other Egyptian rivers and streams into blood. The blood lasted seven days. (Exodus 7:25)
Answer: They were more and mightier than the Egyptians
As the book of Exodus started, there was a distinct difference in how Joseph's family was viewed. The Pharaoh in Exodus 1 knew or remembered not the great things Joseph did to save Egypt from the great famine. In verse 1:9, Pharaoh said to his people, "Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we." Apparently, up to this time, the Israelites were not in bondage.
Answer: Putting him in a basket and floating him down a river
Moses' mother was desperate to find a way to save Moses so she hid him till he was 3 months old and could hide him no longer. When he was 3 months old, she placed him in a basket and floated it down a river. The daughter of the Pharaoh heard a baby crying when she was bathing in the river and took him home and adopted him.
Taken from Exodus 6.30 which was preceded by the 'Family Record of Moses and Aaron'. Moses and Aaron were the ones who were chosen by God to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. In response to Moses' weakness, God replied:
"I am going to make you like God to the king of Egypt, and your brother Aaron will speak to him as your prophet."
Following God's command to Moses and Aaron saw the devastation of the Ten Plagues of Egypt.
Jacob's 12 sons were: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Issachar, Asher, Dan, Zebulun, Gad, Judah, Benjamin, Naphtali, and Joseph.
Answer: Who are Shiprah and Puah?
Exodus 1:15. These ladies for some reason couldn't keep up with those robust Hebrew women. At least this was their claim for the reason why the Hebrew children weren't killed at birth. In reality they feared God more than Pharoah so they refused to follow the orders of Pharoah.
Jacob and his sons lived in Canaan before moving to Egypt. After Joseph's death, the Jews became slaves of Egypt for some 430 years.

Once Moses stuck his walking stick into the waters of Egypt, all the water turned to blood. Exodus 7:20 NKJV.
Moses was the son of Amram (father) and Jochebed (mother), both of whom were Levites. He had a brother named Aaron who was three years older, and an older sister named Miriam.
Exodus 2:2-10 (NLT) tells us that Moses' mother became pregnant with him, knew that there was something special about him and kept him hidden for three months. This was in defiance of the Pharaoh's edict that all Hebrew baby boys had to be drowned at birth. There came a point where she was unable to hide him any longer, so her scheme was to place the baby in a basket of reeds and papyrus, waterproofed with tar and pitch and then hide it in the reeds of the Nile River. Miriam stayed behind to see what would happen.
The baby was found by the Pharaoh's daughter, who took pity on him. Miriam approached the princess and asked if she could find a Hebrew woman to nurse the child. The princess agreed and Moses ended up back with his mother, supported by the princess. When Moses grew older, he was taken back to the Pharaoh's daughter who promptly adopted him and named him Moses, meaning "I lifted him out of the water."
Answer: second book
Genesis is the first book of the Old Testament, followed by Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. The first five books of the Bible are sometimes referred to as the Pentateuch. The Jewish religion refers to them as the Torah.
Answer: Amram and Jochebed
Jochebed was also Amram's aunt, as she was his father's sister. Aaron and Miriam were Moses' brother and sister. Moses also had a wife named Zipporah, a father-in-law named Jethro and a son named Gershom. It states in Exodus 4:25 that Zipporah circumcised her own son and then touched the foreskin on Moses' feet, saying they were now married by blood.

Answer: Shiphrah and Puah
Exodus 1:15- "And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwifes, of which the name of one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah."
Sarah, Rebekah, Leah and Rachel are names from Genesis. Miriam and Zipporah are family members of Moses.
Answer: all of these
Exodus 1:8-11. All of these are true. Pharaoh saw that Israel was multiplying. He felt fearful so he felt like he had to do something.
Aaron is the older brother of Moses. He helped Moses by being his speaker while they were telling Pharaoh to let the Israelites go. When Moses went on top of Mount Sinai to get the Ten Commandments, it was Aaron who was responsible for making an idol out of gold worn by the women.
Answer: By worshiping idols
Worshiping idols can be interpreted as happening when anything that is not God takes a higher place than God in someone's life. It could be models, cars, money, movie stars, sports, etc (Exodus 20:4). In this case, Adam has made an idol of a calf and is literally worshiping it.
Here's what it says in Exodus 1:12,22:
"But the more they (Egyptians) afflicted them (Israelites), the more they multiplied and grew. And they were in dread of the children of Israel. So Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, 'Every son (of the Israelites) who is born you shall cast into the river, and every daughter you shall save alive.'"
It was during this time that Moses was born, but his life was spared because his mother put him in a basket shortly after he was born and set it in the reeds along the bank of a river. Pharaoh's daughter found him and decided to keep him and raised him as her son. When Moses grew up he went back to his own people. One day he saw an Egyptian mistreating one of the Hebrew people and he killed the Egyptian and fled for his life into the land Midian. He married Zipporah, the daughter of a priest and had a family. He had lived there for forty years when God called him to return to Egypt and secure the release of the Israelites in Exodus 3:10.
Exodus 17:8 says, "Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim."
This incident occurred shortly after Israel's murmuring over the lack of water where Moses struck the rock with his staff to provide for the nation.
The staff which had confounded the magicians of Egypt by turning into a serpent, turning the Nile into blood, and parting the Red Sea was put to use again by striking the rock at Mount Sinai (also known as Mount Horeb). Of course it was God's power that performed the feat, and not a magic wand, a symbol of God's power. Exodus 17:6 stated - "Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock; and there shall come water out of it, that they may drink. And Moses did so in sight of the elders of Israel."
Exodus 15:23 recorded, "and when they came to Ma'rah, they could not drink of the waters of Ma'rah for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Ma'rah." In Ruth 1:20, Naomi took the name Ma'ra because she felt the Lord had dealt with her bitterly.
Answer: The next day
Pharaoh told Moses he would let his people go the next day. God listened and the frogs died. Pharaoh did not honor his word and did not let the people of Israel go. (Exodus 8:10-15)
In Exodus 14:7, the Bible recorded that 600 choice chariots were used, as well as others. The choice chariots were most likely strongly built to endure the rigors of battle. This verse suggests there were others, but perhaps they were used merely for transportation purposes.
Answer: As a burning bush
Moses had fled Egypt after killing an Egyptian and was staying with a Midianite family. When he was out shepherding the sheep one day, God appeared to him in the shape of a burning bush and told him to go to the Pharaoh and ask him to free the Jews.
Exodus 20.1-17 discuss The Ten Commandments set forth by God. This quote is the fifth of The Ten Commandments. The Ten Commandments in order according to the Good News Bible are as follows:
1. Worship no God but me.
2. Do not make for yourselves images of anything in heaven or on earth or in the water under the earth.
3. Do not use my name for evil purposes.
4. Observe the Sabbath and keep it holy.
5. Respect your father and your mother, so that you may live a long time in the land that I am giving you.
6. Do not commit murder.
7. Do not commit adultery.
8. Do not steal.
9. Do not accuse anyone falsely.
10. Do not desire another man's house; do not desire his wife, his slaves, his cattle, his donkeys, or anything else that he owns.
"Exodus 7:1: And the Lord said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet. "
I put "biological brother" because tradition teaches that he was taken in by Ramses' family and considered Ramses to be his brother as well.
Answer: Who was Reuel?
Exodus 2:18. Reuel was also known as Jethro. He was the priest of Midian and a very wise man when it came to leadership issues. He had many daughters.
Exodus 15:22-25. At God's direction, Moses cast a tree into the water, which made it sweet. "Mara(h)" means bitter, and this is also the name Naomi adopts for herself in the book of Ruth when her two sons die (Ruth 1:20).
