Zipporah was one of seven Midianite sisters that mistook Moses for an Egyptian after he saved them from the men at the well (Exodus 2:16-19). Her father Jethro was the priest of Midian, and it was he that gave Zipporah to Moses to marry. While she is introduced early in Exodus, very little is said about her. In fact, she’s only mentioned three times in scripture.

  • Zipporah: meaning bird or little bird.

The First Wife of Moses

What isn’t immediately obvious in scripture is that Moses had two wives and Zipporah was the first. This is actually a topic that is debated often, but scripture is clear that Moses married two different women from two different lineages. We can prove that by tracing their lineages in scripture.

  • Zipporah was a descendant of Abraham’s son Midian, who was born to Keturah. Ketrah was Abrham’s third wife. This means that Zipporah is a descendant of the line of Shem (Genesis 25:1-2).
  • Moses’ second wife is unnamed and referred to as an Ethiopian in the KJV and a Cushite in most other translations (Numbers 12:1). Cushites were descendants from the line of Ham through his son Cush.

By looking at the lineages we can safely conclude that Moses had at least two wives mentioned in scripture. Zipporah was the wife that gave birth to the two sons of Moses:

Sunny Day at Court Square in Brooklyn

Near the A & C train Jay Street Metro Tech subway station. Even closer are the 4, 5, 2, 3 and R subway trains Borough Hall Station.

Temps once again in the upper 70s.  Great Day to take and absorb some Vitamin D.

 

Major courthouses, Farmers Market, plenty of green space areas for fun, games, and exercise.  Of course lots of shops and stores for dedicated shoppers and those just browsing for bargains. Brooklyn Law School, Municipal Building.  One of the Larger major Brooklyn Post Offices where you can also get your Passport.

Memorial dedicated to World War II soldiers.  Almost made it to the Brooklyn Bridge but I got called away.  In some photos you can see the Brooklyn Bridge off in the distance.

Took a few photos of the Henry Ward Beecher statue. He was a famous Abolitionist.  Here is more information on Henry Ward Beecher from Wikipedia.

Today Spring finally made an appearance in New York City.  The Temps went up to a balmy 74 Degrees Fahrenheit!  Great day for a stroll along Broadway in Brooklyn with a snack stop at Little Skips East Coffee Shop for a snack.  I plan to bring some of my artwork to Little Skips East who may feature my collages within the Coffee Shop!  Hooray!

One of the best things that I Love about living in Brooklyn are all the street murals.  Amazing artwork to be seen and enjoyed adorning walls and sides of buildings!  Incredible!

Here are some photos that I took to Celebrate this warm lovely Spring day!
