History of Moses Baskets
Moses' baskets are an important symbol in the history of Judaism and Christianity. In the Bible, Moses baskets appear in the Old Testament, in the book of Exodus. According to the Bible, Moses was found as an infant by Pharaoh's daughter in a basket that was made of reeds and lined with pitch and asphalt. Moses was then brought up in Pharaoh's palace, but later left the palace and became the leader of the Israelites.
In the book of Exodus, it is described that Moses was commanded by God to build a basket, which was to be made of acacia wood and covered with gold. The basket was supposed to have two handles, which was supposed to make it easier to carry. The stones with the Decalogue, i.e. the ten commandments that God gave to Moses on Mount Sinai, were supposed to be stored in the basket. The basket was to be carried along with the tablets with the Decalogue by the Israelites during their journey through the desert.
According to tradition, Moses' baskets were also used to store the manna that God sent to the Israelites as they wandered through the desert. These baskets were used as sacrificial chests, to store sacred items such as incense burners and oil ampoules, and as a place to store the corpses of those who died during the journey.
In Christianity, the Moses basket is considered a symbol of salvation and the saving power of God. Jesus Christ in the New Testament is considered to be the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecies regarding the Messiah who was to come to earth. According to Christian tradition, Jesus Christ is salvation for people, and the Moses basket has become a symbol of salvation that was brought by Jesus.
