settled in the land of Midian.

ANSWER: In c.1508BC, as a young man of 20, Moses sees a Hebrew slave being beaten by an Egyptian overseer. In anger, Moses kills the Egyptian official. Fearing retribution from the pharaoh (and, perhaps, death threats from his jealous stepbrothers), Moses flees to Midian, near the Gulf of Aqaba. Moses rescues some shepherdesses and waters their flocks at a well. Their father invites Moses (who is clearly a well-educated Egyptian) to stay, so Moses marries one of his daughters, Zipporah, and settles down for the next fifty years to raise a family in exile in Midian.

4.i. Describe the event at Bethany which made Jesus speak of Himself as the Resurrection and the Life.

ANSWER: Jesus had a friend whose name was Lazarus. He lived in Bethany. When he fell ill, his sisters, Mary and Martha sent for Jesus, but he said Lazarus’ illness was not unto death. Jesus delayed for four days before he arrived with his disciples. Many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary to console them concerning their brother who had died. When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went to meet him and told Jesus that if he had been there, her brother would not have died. However, she believed that whatever Jesus asked from God would be granted. Jesus answered Martha that Lazarus would rise again. Martha said that she knew that Lazarus would rise again in the resurrection at the last day. Jesus then said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me though he dies yet shall he live and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die”. Martha confessed her faith in him as the Christ, the son of God who came into the world.

ii. What three lessons can we learn from this declaration?


  • The believer in Christ passes from the physical death of the body to live eternal in heaven.
  •  Jesus gave his life for the world so that believers will live with him forever.
  •  The raising of Lazarus manifested the glory of God.
