Moses As a Legal Prophet



In ancient Egypt, judicial law was administered by the “vizier” who represented the king of Egypt to the people.

The vizier was called a prophet – the “Prophet of Ma’at”.

But during the time of Moses, Egypt’s kings also began administering justice and Moses would have been trained to do this in addition to learning other aspects of Egyptian law. And the ability to write was important because he would have had to leave a written record of the case and judgments he handed down.

 

So Moses, as a Prophet of Ma’at or prophet of the law, appears to begin a legal case against both the Egyptians and the Hebrews recorded on scrolls that later became books of the Bible. In the legal case, Moses appears to be suing the Egyptian Africans, which he would judge and hand down a sentence. The problem is that Moses, instead of only taking out his justice (to whom he was filing the lawsuit with is unclear) on the Egyptians, he hands down his sentence to affect all Africans.

 

In Egyptian legal proceedings, judges acted as prosecutor, too. So Moses would not only judge the case and hand down sentences, but he would also ask probing questions related to the case, first giving the defendants the opportunity to plead guilty or innocent.
