Looking Back on Moses: The Man


Ok, here we go! Ready for the Ultimate Journey through the eyes of Moses? I
hope so! We want to make our group meetings as personal as possible.
Perhaps after some crowd breaker and opening prayer, you could follow with
these two initial questions.

What have you learned about or from Moses that has surprised
you, impressed you, or caused you some deeper thoughts?

Have you had any personal life flash backs or questions that you
are starting to ask yourself as a result of your exposure to Moses
life so far?

You can also reflect on the quotes in the Looking Back Bible Study Guide and get
feedback.
How about a little test on the Ultimate Journey? What are some of the phases?
Finally, the questions at the end of the BS Guide could also be used to facilitate
closing discussion.
Thanks for your servant leadership!
Tom
LOOKING BACK
Moses: The Ultimate Journey
The Man
Exodus 2:22
Moses: The Man. Boy, was he ever. More than even he knew. At age 40 he
begins to realize that his life is out of control. He has to come to terms with
who he really is. I am a sojourner in a foreign land. Exodus 2:22. Why would he
name his first born son that? You might want to notice that his wife had
introduced him to her father as an Egyptian! 2:19 Talk about an identity crises!

Thinking It Through (agree/disagree consider/contemplate)

Many of us decided in childhood that the best way to meet our needs was to
eliminate our needs. Of course denying our needs doesnt make them
disappear. Child-size solutions never fit adult-size problems.

Big boys dont cry.
Bob Crewe

Was my arm too short to ransom you? Do I lack strength to rescue you?...Surely
the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor His ear too dull to hear.
Isaiah 50:2; 59:1
Your God is too fast.

Robert Mouw on corrective theology

Working it Out
1. What surprised you, haunted you, or encouraged you in this initial look at the
life of Moses?
2. Sandra Wilson says, Feelings are a fact, and feelings have a history. What
do you think she means?
3. What does our church mean by the Ultimate Journey and where are you
beginning to see yourself in it?
