PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Drama
The defiant leader Moses rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses, setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
The unworldly boy who speaks to Moses in his dreams is not meant to be God, but an angel. He is credited as Malak, from the Hebrew word for a messenger.
In the battle a leader will be saved, and his savior will someday lead.
Moses: Then the entrails should also say that we will abandon reason and be guided by omens.
When Nun first tells Moses about the prophecy of his birth and how he came to live in the palace, he tells Moses only the first born males were ordered killed. Moses, however, is the youngest child; his older siblings are Aaron and Miriam - whom Nun even mentions when he tells Moses who he really is, and that Miriam placed him in a basket into the Nile. The actual edict was that all male Hebrews be drowned.
