Shall We Try Again?
Unfortunately it doesn't seem you know much about Moses, a huge figure in the bible. His story, whether you believe in it or not, is one well worth reading and remembering, so we recommend refreshing your memory about the Exodus.
You Know Quite a Bit!
Moses is a huge figure in the bible and in Abrahamic religions, and many of us know at least the name and some of the story. You seem to know a bit more than that about the figure of Moses. Good for you! However, there were a few things you missed, so you may wanna have a look at our answers or try again.
A Biblical Scholar!
You know a LOT about this legendary figure from the Book of Exodus in the Old Testament. This story is thousands of years old, and yet it is a basic part of the Abrahamic faiths, and, even as a story, has much to teach us. You've shown you haven't forgotten that and that you know a lot about it. Good show!
