Moses wrote the first five books of the Bible. He was raised in the Courts of Egypt as a princely Epyptian until the age of 40. Then he spent another 40 years in the wilderness of Midian as a family man, shepherding his father-in-laws flocks, until finally he was called by God to lead His people Israel out of Egyptian slavery and give them the Ten Commandments (God's moral laws) as well as the Ceremonial and Civil Laws.
