The Hebrew word for “ark” occurs in only two places in all of the Bible. Once in the Noah account in Genesis, and the second time?
The “papyrus basket” that the Levite woman uses to hide the baby among the bulrushes is the Hebrew word for “ark.” Isn’t that fascinating?
Some questions from today’s chapter:
- Why call the basket an “ark”? What is the author implying?
- How might Moses’s strange upbringing–a Hebrew raised as an Egyptian–prepare him for the task the Lord has for him?
- How did word get out that Moses killed that Egyptian overseer?
- What is it that God remembers in 2:24? Why does that matter?
