You Don’t Have to be Jewish to Enjoy Watching Moses on Film!

At sundown, this coming Monday Jews all across the world will begin the celebration of Passover. Outside of Israel, the first two days of the holiday begin with a Seder (Jewish holidays begin in the evening). Now during the Seder Jews across the world tell the story of the Exodus from Egypt. But the book that provides the script for the seder  doesn’t mention one important person in the biblical Exodus story….MOSES. Yes that Moses… Prophet, miracle maker, former tennis player and prince of Egypt. How do I know he played tennis? Doesn’t the bible say that Moses served in the courts of Pharaoh.

The crazy part was that ignoring Moses was not a biblical command, Nowhere in the book of Exodus does it say, “Thus sayath the Lord, when you remember this day ‘ixnay on the osesmay.’  The Moses omission was a man-made decision.  Refusing to listen to those ancient Rabbis, The Lidblog has found a way  honor poor Moses (who still gets blamed for the fact that if he made a right instead of a left the Jews would have all the oil).

In an attempt to it up to Moses for being left out of the Passover seder, The Lid presents a baker’s dozen movie/TV clips of different actors playing Moses on film(below).  Most of the clips show the splitting of the reed sea.
