Slender Reeds: Jochebed’s Hope : by Texie Susan Gregory

Standard

This is the story of Jochebed, mother of Moses, who was chosen by God to deliver the Israelites from Egyptian bondage. It is also about her beloved mother, Elisheba and an Egyptian/Israelite midwife by the name of Shiprah. These are fictional characters that help us understand the times of Moses’ birth.  Gregory describing these times in detail gives us insight into what God’s people had to endure during slavery. The ultimate agony was when the Ramses declared all male babies born to the slaves must be killed as soon as delivered. This is where Shiprah comes into play. She was taken in by  Elisheba, when she was found half dead hiding along the river. She was as a sister to Jochebed and refused to kill the babies. Thus they hid Moses in the rushes is a basket Jochebed had woven and pitched it so it was water resistant. Ramses daughter found him and as she was barren, took him as her own and brought him up in the palace………. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest review.                                                                                                                                                                Slender Reeds: Jochebed's Hope by [Gregory, Texie Susan]
