Moses is the main character in Exodus, the second book of the Old Testament, the part of the Judaeo-Christian Bible accepted as scriptural by both Jews and Christians. The first five books of the Old Testament, know as the Pentateuch, are traditionally attributed to Moses, but were actually transmitted orally for many generations, and have multiple authors. Moses, according to Biblical tradition, led the Jews out of their captivity in Egypt to the promised land. He transmitted God’s laws to the Jewish people, thus acting as a source of spiritual and moral as well as practical leadership.
