Mothers in the Bible – Jochebed

“By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not afraid of the king’s command.”  Hebrews 11:23 Jochebed was a slave.  She was one of the Hebrews whose forefathers had settled in Egypt centuries before when the Hebrew Joseph […]
