According to the Bible, Moses lived to be 120 years old. The first third of his life was spent in Egypt as the son of the Pharoah, when the Queen rescued him from a basket floating in the water. The second third of his life was when he discovered he was a Jew and left Egypt. The last third was when God called him to return to Egypt and free his people. Then came the plagues, and you know the rest. In that last third, Moses came to here, to Mt Nebo, where God showed him the Promised Land. This was Moses’ last station in life which is why this place is so spiritual and historical.
