Consequently, who did Moses live with in Midian?
One may also ask, how long did it take Moses to get from Egypt to Midian? If only the Jewish people hadn't skipped that class while enslaved in Egypt, perhaps it wouldn't have taken them 40 years to arrive at the Promised Land. It seems, however, that God had other plans for our ancestors.
Besides, why did Moses flee from Egypt to Midian?
One day after Moses had reached adulthood he killed an Egyptian who was beating a Hebrew. Moses, in order to escape the Pharaoh's death penalty, fled to Midian (a desert country south of Judah), where he married Zipporah. During the journey, God tried to kill Moses, but Zipporah saved his life.
What age did Moses leave Midian?
The age of Moses (Hebrew Mosheh) when he fled from Egypt is not stated in Exodus 2:15, but is given as 40 in The New Testament (Acts 7:23). Forty is one of a few ages assigned him in rabbinical traditions (18 and 20 being advocated by other exegetes).
