A Biblical Tale of Courage You Just Might Need Courage to Teach


Moses’ encounter with God in Exodus 4:21–26 is arguably one of the strangest, most confusing events recorded in the Bible. In this passage, Moses is en route to Egypt—seemingly following God’s call to deliver the Israelites from Pharaoh’s vice-like grip. But then something shocking happens:

Get Quick Access to Your Highlighters with This Simple Trick

We step inside that tomb, only to discover that it’s empty.
