As I drove home, I was thinking of the passover story. I was struggling with this.
The story begins in Egypt with Moses the prince of Egypt. Moses is living a pretty good life as far as we can tell then he murders some one. He murders a person who is beating on a slave.
Moses banishes himself and then is picked by G-d to save his Israelite kin. Why would G-d pick a murderer? Why does Moses become our greatest prophet? Why do we not hear of this again even after Moses walks down Sinai with the words of G-d?
Thou shalt not murder. לֹא תִרְצָח -Exodus 20:12
So does this mean that it is sometimes ok to murder? You can murder and become the prophet of a people. Or is there something different because Moses had not learned about this law yet?
