the man who led the hebrews out of slavery
at the time of moses' birth, egyptian pharaoh felt threatened by # hebrews in Egypt, so ordered that all of the hebrew male babies be killed.
to save moses, his mother hid him in the reeds along the nile, and the egyptian princess found and adopted him.
moses ordered that the pharaoh let hebrews go, and when he refused, bad things plagued the egyptians. Then he let them leave, and moses led them out.
Hebrews traveled across sinai peninsula
Moses climed to top of mt sinai to pray, and then spoke with god.
when he came down, he had with him 2 tablets with the ten commandments on it
after that, the hebrews wandered for 40 yrs in Sinai desert, but once moses died, they returned to canaan and became farmers.
these highlight women's subordinate place in society despite all women being equal in Gods eyes
Paul, writer of the epistles, denied even the most outstanding women, like Pheobe, Lydia, and Persis, public leadership roles
women should keep silent in churches, but if have questions, they can ask their husbands in the privacy of their homes

no women should teach or have authority over men
women can only save themselves from sin by having children
They should be faithful, loving, holy, modest, and submissive.
