Teaching Idea #1

Even though filmmakers consulted with a range of religious scholars, the film was banned in three Muslim countries. What was the reason for its ban? How do films made about Islam accommodate this concern?

Teaching Idea #2

One of the biggest departures in the film from the book of Exodus is the character of Ramses, who isn’t mentioned in this book of the Old Testament. Why do you think the filmmakers create this relationship? Research Ramses II to learn more about the historical connection between him and Moses.

Teaching Idea #3

In scripture, Aaron is a more central partner assisting Moses in many of his obligations, while Tzipporah has a much smaller role. Why do you think the filmmakers made these choices?

Teaching Idea #4

Can you think of another story you have read or seen that has an orphan being raised as a wealthy person? How is that story the same or different from version of Moses story?
