    A couple of changes and he could have been his own stepfather.

    You realize that by Amram marrying his aunt, that made Moshe his own first cousin once removed?

    Talmud Bavli – Shabbat 55b:

    4 people died because of the bite of the original snake (only – meaning they had no sin of their own):

    1) Amram
    2) Binyamin
    3) Yishai (David’s father)
    4) Kilav (David’s son)

    Something is going on here.

    Jack, don’t you know how hard it was to ever get straight answers out of the Moses Administration, they were constantly stonewalling the reporters 🙂

    From Rashi we know the Midrash that Amram separated from Yocheved when Pharoh issued his decree demanding the killing of all sons. It was an example that many Jews followed. So Miriam reproached her father and told him that he was worse than Pharoh, for Pharoh only decreed against the sons; but Amram was preventing all children from being born.
    Amram heeded his daughter’s advice and remarried Yocheved.

    Ok, so he married his aunt. Got it. But as Zoe said, why don’t we learn more about him.

    Great question though.. Many implications… But they’re right, it was Amram. Why don’t we learn more about him?

    Ex. 6:20 – “Amram married his father’s sister Jochebed, who bore him Aaron and Moses. Amram lived 137 years.”
