Aaron, interestingly, I have been re-watching the “Patterns of Evidence Exodus” and “The Moses Controversy” documentaries this weekend. I agree that it is obvious Moses could read. I had two main thoughts through the “Moses Controversy” documentary, which were eventually addressed in the film:
1)God Himself wrote on tablets of stone to Moses the core ten commandments for all of Israel to following in pursuing the holiness of God, and
2)Moses was raised and nursed by His own mother in the infant/toddler years of his life and then raised and educated in Pharaoh’s house, which certainly had to include reading and writing.
Even now, I am thinking about Moses’ 40 years of learning in Pharaoh’s house and then 40 years of learning from a semitic priest, his father-in-law, while shepherding in the desert. Truly, God was preparing Moses for writing and imparting the laws of the covenant to the mixed multitude of Israelites for generations to come. These documentaries are very thought provoking and inspire a stirring of faith in God and the writings of The Bible.
