Ok he has a big staff , magic staff. He has a huge white beard. he wears a robe.
He casts spells and curses on people in the name of God of course.

He fits the classic descritpion of a story book Wizard.

Has anyone else noticed this?

I also heard there was some occutl book called the sword of book of moses ??

Let's discuss.

Arguably, a wizard has inmate powers, while Moses was just asking God to use his cheat codes to change things so people listen\escape.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

He could have been a wizard.  Though it was never recorded whether or not he sported a pointy Merlin hat.

Considering the 10 plagues and the fact that Egyptians never used immigrants as slaves, Moses was more like a terrorist.

They came with a Bible and their religion. stole our land, crushed our spirit, and now they tell us we should be thankful to the Lord for being saved.

Let's just have some fun with Exodus like Kevin Smith would. Let's say...at least 10 plagues actually happened. Pharaoh was manipulated by God himself to act cruel to the People of God.

Unfortunately, if God is real then this story is not far off from our world we live in. I am not saying that it's all made up, but the core aspect of the Exodus story makes Mountains of Madness look like...I don't know, just pick up any Dr. Seuss book.

EDIT: If God is real, then the Book of Exodus reveals the true nature of the deity who rules our world. And when you realize it, you'd rather relocate to Hell.

Yes... Moses occupies an archetypical place in literature. And in life. I respect men with big white beards. I can't help it.

To bad I cant grow one. My Native American blood plays havoc on any facial hair.

Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

He wasn't a wizard, that's a type of magic user.  Clearly, Moses was of the cleric class.

It's kind of weird, but yeah, part of the "wise old wizard/wise old crone" avatar is that often, the sources of that wisdom are of a lesser "caste" or social level, than one's own.
Race is another factor.  Wise Asian masters of every creed and age are a common action movie staple.  We also get the "Magical Negro", character who tends to have understated powers used to grow a white character into the movie's hero.
