A Jewish man mentioned exclusively in Exodus, Deuteronomy, part of Numbers and refered to in many other parts of the Bible. As a boy, the Egyptian Pharoh ordered the death of all male babies. His parents helped him to escape, and he became a member of the Pharoh's family once found by the Pharoh's wife.
Heard God's voice and commands and, through his faith and God's power, was able to meet the Pharoh, attempt to persuade him to allow the Jewish slaves to leave, but was forced to bring ten plauges upon the Pharoh's empire. The last one killed the Pharoh's eldest boy, and he ordered Moses and all the Jewish people to get out of his country. Later, the Pharoh regretted his decision, and chased after Moses with the full Egyptian army.
This is where Moses becomes famous. At the border of the Red Sea, he and his people were cut off, blocked by the sea and the Egyptians, who were fended off the day before by a tornado of fire. Moses orders the sea to step aside, and, through the power of God, it does. All the Jewish people cross the dry seabed, followed closely by the Pharoh's army. When the last Jew is on the other side, the sea closes back up again, engulfing and violently drowning the Pharoh's army.
God had promised the Jews a fertile land that was perfect for them. However, when they reached it, the scouts saw it and the people in it. They wildly exaggerated the size of these people, calling them giants, and, for their unfaithfulness, all twelve Jewish tribes, including Moses himself, were banished from the promised land for forty years. Moses died shortly thereafter, and never saw the Promised Land in his life.
