Most people fight with their siblings, but the conflicts between Moses and his siblings are pretty epic. But we can learn a few things about forgiveness, hatred, love, holding grudges, and healing broken relationships from the stories of Moses, Rameses, Miriam, and Aaron.
Licensed therapist Jonathan Decker and filmmaker Alan Seawright talk about the cinematic masterpiece The Prince of Egypt, and how even though we're not fighting off plagues (well, we kinda are right now) or freeing an entire people from being enslaved, the relationships in this movie are very relatable and there's a lot we can learn from them. Plus, the music and animation are absolutely gorgeous, and the cast is phenomenal.

That's true. Many would think that giving advice will help to lessen the problem (I mean if it's necessary then you can), but it's most of listening to that person who's having the problem to just take the burden off of their chest. That way, the person will not sulk not fixing their problems because it feels heavy. Edit: That perspective of hatred is new. A refreshing insight. P.S. Can you guys do an analysis of Addams Family (1991) and Addams Family Values (1993)? Lots of people said that they are an example of a good family. I want to know guys what your thoughts about it. P.P.S. In my entire Christian life, I haven't seen this movie. Now I want to watch it~

As a christian, I love how the film humanises the characters. These are real people from thousands of years ago that are struggling with things we still do now. They arent spineless, they had their own doubts and fears. When Moses met God he didnt all of a suddon become fearless and confident, there were doubts and a ton of shame, but God still used him. A truely motivating film as well as a great example of faith.
As a Pentecostal And Charismatic Christianity, I agree

@@nathanhynes1937 As God is the author of all life, He is the only one with the right to take life. The plagues that God brought down upon Egypt were a demonstration of God's mighty power that is greater than any god that man could possibly dream up. In Exodus 9:16, God tells Moses to say to the Pharaoh that God brought these plagues so "…that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth." God will judge everyone justly and He knows the hearts of all of us. When these children were killed by the "destroyer" and they were brought before God for judgement, God already knew their hearts and knew which ones were to be in His presence for eternity or who would be forever separated from His presence. If Christianity is true, then death itself is just being brought from this world into the next where we either spend eternity worshipping our Creator God, or eternity away from His presence. Every firstborn of the Egyptians died, but the Israelite children were spared because the blood of the lamb had been placed on their doorframes. So begins the story of redemption, the central theme of the Bible. Redemption means "to buy back" or "to save from captivity by paying a ransom." One way to buy back a slave was to offer an equivalent or superior slave in exchange. That is the way God chose to buy us back - he offered his Son in exchange for us. In Old Testament times, God accepted symbolic offerings. Jesus had not yet been sacrificed, so God accepted the life of an animal in place of the life of the sinner. When Jesus came, he substituted his perfect life for our sinful lives, taking the penalty for sin that we deserve. Thus he redeemed us from the power of sin and restored us to God. Jesus' sacrifice made animal sacrifice no longer necessary. We must recognize that if we want to be freed from the deadly consequences of our sins, a tremendous price must be paid. But we don't have to pay it! Jesus Christ, our substitute, has already redeemed us by his death on the cross. Our part is to trust him and accept his gift of eternal life. Our sins have been paid for, and the way has been cleared for us to begin a relationship with God (Titus 2:14; Hebrews 9:13-15, 23-26)

The way Moses breaks down, after HIS nephew is killed by a plague HIS God sent and seeing the pain HIS brother is experiencing, genuinely made me cry.

So the historical accuracy of this biblical story is…eh, but I don’t think that matters. The Bible is about the meaning of the story, not so much the story itself. At the time that the story is supposedly set they would have crossed the Red Sea into more Egypt. Egyptians were also good at bragging about people they’d conquered, and Hebrews don’t pop up on that list. But, we know that the Red Sea does ‘part’ under certain conditions. People have been enslaved for thousands of years, and there have been uprisings. I feel like the Bible’s stories were formed over time with meaningful events. The wild time the Red Sea parted? Over time it becomes less of a historical fact and more of a story. And people crossed it when it parted. And they were enslaved. I feel like the story grew and evolved naturally. In my interpretation, it doesn’t really matter that it was Egypt and not Sumer, or that they were Hebrew not Nubian, what we learn from it matters. If you’re interested in the history ‘Egypt, Canaan, and Israel in ancient times’ is a fun read that touches on the subject of the Exodus.

Love the movie. It leaves out one of my favorite parts of the biblical story: kid Miriam walking up to the princess/queen bold as brass, and says, "wow, you found a baby. Coincidentally I happen to know a woman who no longer has a baby, and could be his wet nurse." And that it works. Which leaves you to assume that Adoptive Mother knows exactly what's going on, and goes along with it.

Now women who could do the job might not have been scarce, but a Jewish girl they don't even know, conveniently being on the scene right after they pick a baby in a boat basket out of the river, who has the presence of mind to put in an application on behalf of her mother, would be slightly unusual.

That line "Ramesses, in my heart you are my brother, but things cannot be as they were" hits hard every time I hear it because Ramesses wants Moses back, but Moses can't reconcile unless Ramesses upends his entire world, his whole empire, and disappoints the expectations his father held for him. Letting the Hebrews go isn't in his power as a leader of his country, but Moses demands it of him because it's morally right.

@ItsAsparageese Yıl önce
Interesting, haven't heard that one before. I think it works if we take a pretty broad view of "love". The philosophy I've been most exposed to/found to be the most widely resonant with other concepts is that the opposite of love is fear, in a molecular-level -philia and -phobos kind of way. I frame the belief as there being no such thing as true stagnation, since on every scale from molecularly to cosmically, everything is either moving towards or away from any given other thing at any given time. (To continue the particles-level lens on the idea, I guess I'm arguing that we can't really choose apathy because by observing and being aware of a thing we automatically change our relationship to that thing, and thus our movement toward or away from it becomes a chosen act.) But yeah in a strictly human/emotional framework, if we take "love" in a sense where it's inextricable from fear since they're two sides of one sense of passion/feeling, then yeah I guess that duality's opposite quality would be stagnation or apathy. I never thought of it this way before but yeah I guess at the very least we're inherently by defintion apathetic toward all things we're truly unaware of lol XD

Whether from an absence of love, because the hated person took their own love or another's love away from the hating one, or because the hating one hates others almost as an attempt to honour a tradition, albeit a terrible one; a continuation of the lesson their own loved one(s) passed on and ingrained into their head and/or heart.

I think why this film works so well with everyone and not just for abrahamistic theists is simply, because it doesn't come across as preachy by leaving the actions within the characters agency. There is no 'hardening Pharaos heart' or anything that makes the story come across as bias. The characters just feel like they are reacting as people and it makes it feel so much more real outside of the beautiful artistry of the movie itself.
I love that it shows the real struggle with faith and relationships and learning that the world isn’t black and white and it doesn’t make Moses seem like he’s a perfect, most holy, righteous man but as a man who has seemingly strayed from God and participated in hurting his people. Every bit of this movie portrays human faith so well and it makes me feel connected to God more than any preacher ever has. Especially after the scene with the burning bush where God is forgiving Moses for his sins and tells Moses that He will be with him through this all.

@@thelastunicorn949 I don’t think you understood that person’s comment. When God hardens your heart, it is to say he KNOWS you hate him and has given up on you. You feel the absence of his love and forgiveness so all you can do is become hateful. It’s a lot to process. Bc God doesn’t give up on people unless they truly don’t want anything to do with goodness (which is a gift from God). The “hardness” is a refusal to forgive, accept reality, admit truth. And often people harden their heart when they’ve seen all God is capable of, and hate him anyway. That was the point of the plagues in Egypt - God was destroying every idol they worshipped and forcing them to admit he was real. Ramses at this point understands that each plague is God saying “this specific idol is false, I’m real. Let the Hebrews go.” And Ramses hates God for it. That’s what makes him try to kill the Hebrews at the Red Sea. He is fully aware of who God is, and what he has to do and disregards it entirely. He couldn’t accept reality and the truth made him hate God and Moses 😭 It’s very heartbreaking actually

I love the scene where Moses looks out the window and sees the slaves suffering but when he asks Rameses to look out the window the slaves are not there because Rameses doesn't see them. It was a great way to visually represent their different perspectives. They also did a fantastic job showing how much it pains Moses to have to carry out the plagues against the Egyptians. Like after the last plague, when Moses leaves the palace after Rameses tells him his people may go, he collapses against a wall because he is so overwhelmed by the weight of the pain and suffering caused by the plagues. I also find it interesting that Rameses fear of being the weak link causes him to be the weak link.

One thing I realized recently that separates Moses from Rameses is accountability. When Moses accidentally kills a man, Rameses's primary concern is sweeping it under the rug, but Moses embraces the consequences of his actions. But when Rameses is responsible for slavery, Moses holds him accountable, and Rameses resents him for it.
@brandoncruise6398 2 yıl önce
There’s a little more to that in the Bible. After Moses kills the person he actually does try to hide the body, but guilt and more guilt built over the hours before deciding to run away. Everything you see in the movie scene did happen as you mentioned. So in that time not only is Moses aware of what happens when you lack accountability, but knows very deeply the weight of what sweeping it under the rug brings.
@hayleybartek8643 2 yıl önce
Moses also accepts responsibility for the disaster of the chariot race resulting in one of the statues losing its nose. More, he tries to accept all the blame and shield Rameses from any of it, while the Pharaoh wants to place all blame on Rameses because the is the elder sibling. Both father and brother make him incapable of accepting any blame.

This could also be down to how Ramses was taught during his upbringing. The pharaohs are not seen as human rulers, but as incarnations of deities. Therefore, all the children of pharaohs are brought up to believe that they are the only ones worthy of casting judgements on others and deciding how things go since they see themselves as gods.

Because Rameses way of showing love is protecting his brother from consequences but when his brother did the opposite to him he felt betrayed because in Ramses mind is he would never punish his brother but Moses dared do it to him!

The Prince of Egypt is easily one of the best animated movies ever made. The visuals are stunning, the actors hired to voice the characters is absolutely A-list, and the fact that the filmmakers were able to create a movie that is both faithful to the source material as well as appealing to non-believers is absolutely incredible. I know many people who do believe, and do not believe, and they all absolutely love this movie. I saw it in the cinema when it first released and I absolutely loved it. I still love it nearly 25 years later. I watch it a couple times a year and it always blows me away.

18:00 "The Plague" music number also further explored Mosses and Rameses fractured relationship where the former sang, "I wish that God has choose another / Serving your foe on his behalf was the last thing that I wanted." I loved this movie. This was indeed a humanized telling of the Story of Mosses. It does hit home for me due to not having the best upbringing, but that's here or there. In a way, it's a family movie that shows situations that some families deal with everyday, but also focus on forgiveness, redemption and making heart-breaking choices. This is a great deep dive from a therapist and filmmakers perspective.

23:35 that's the single moment I never forgot from this film. You pointed out something significant that the overblown heston epic missed: With Ramses not able to have friends, Moses is someone in his life who is closer than a brother. Everything that has happened has done far more than stab him in the heart, and perhaps the only way to alleviate that pain is to destroy the one who, in a sense murdered his brother (being Moses himself)

The scene right after Pharaoh is holding is dead son and Moses leaves and begins to cry is so powerful. It’s so emotional and it shows how Moses was not unaffected by the sorrow surrounding him.
this^^^^ that scene always gets me. A lot of people seem to look at the movie with a good vs evil view and forget that that little boy was Moses' nephew. Moses also had a son (he isn't shown in the movie, but he's in the original story) who would likely have been the boy's age in the movie, so it probably hit him especially hard. The line in The Plagues where Moses goes "This was my home! All this pain and devastation, how it tortures me inside" really shows this

This film is phenomenal. As a Christian, I really love how true and respectful to the source material they are but are able to use the space between what is written to craft some really incredible characters and build on the story. I will say that the one who really got a raw deal though is Aaron. In the biblical account, he was behind Moses all the way and wasn’t the doubter that he was in the movie. In fact, a lot of interpretations of the Bible indicate that Moses wasn’t a good public speaker and/or had some sort of stutter so Aaron did most of the formal communicating and translating for him. Pretty interesting fun fact.
Awesome discussion, guys! Well, I would say it’s both a Bible film, and a film about relationships that’s for everybody. I loved the songs, and the characters were really well done overall, especially the relationship with Moses, and Ramses, and his siblings. I also liked how one of you said that “Just because you love someone doesn’t mean you have to have them in your life.” It’s true, especially when relationships can be toxic in life. Well, great video! Thanks for sharing all of these points.
this single shot of "deliver us" at 2:14 made me cry. I am a pagan witch but this is my favourite animated movie since I am 9 years old because of the pure beauty and humanity that makes the story.

Years later she was still around him and her mom so I assumed she had forgiven him for doing that to her. But fast forward some time later turns out he was also sexually abusing her granddaughter. I was so blown away and devastated on my friend's behalf! Like how could you even do that to someone?! They forgave you and still kept you around in their lives, but you turn around and betray them in the worst possible way... AGAIN! I really don't think she talks to the abuser or her mom anymore after that (mom took the abuser's side over her daughter and granddaughter) 😔. My friend seems to be doing better now, but I can't help but wonder if she forgave her step father and mom after that. I figure depending on who you are dealing with forgiving someone can be so very hard, especially if you had been betrayed by them before in the past 😢.
'Forgive but never forget'. That's what it comes down to. I forgave my dad for abusing me as a child and moved on. We have a great relationship. He is a good person that has taught me a lot. But the memories are always there.

You know, I’ve always taken that scene where Ramses asks Moses to let him sweep what he did under the rug as him begging to not lose the one person who saw him as a human and not as just some future figurehead. As well as begging to not be left alone with their father, whose influence left this horrible mark on him. It always feels like he knows what will happen when Moses leaves and he doesn’t want to face it.

Love and hate runs in an oxymoronic cycle and it takes factors such as emotional intelligence and forgiveness to form an equilibrium in our relationships with others.

I know they were mostly covering the siblings, but Moses and his wife also have a really interesting story of forgiveness in the movie. He publicly humiliates and shames her, and even though he then aided her escape after she didn't have to forgive him for that. And, in a small way, she does have her vengeance. But she does forgive him and responds in a very different way from Rameses to his shame. While Rameses tries to make it go away, she acknowledges it and lets him feel it, but then doesn't let him wallow in it when she makes him "join the dance." Then of course we see for the rest of the movie she's ride or die with him, and there's such great love that grows out of forgiveness.
Precisely. Another key here is genuinely being contrite. Moses is clearly regretful of how he treated her, and then of course his major paradigm shift happens, but yep ALL this ❤️

I LOVE The Prince of Egypt! Easily one of my favorite movies, both as a "quasi-religious" Jew and for it's own sake as a compelling drama. In the spirit of a video involving character psychology however, though the movie took GREAT care in both respecting the source material and giving the characters incredible depth, there's one area where I felt it failed in both. They left out Moses's greatest human flaw...anger. When reading the Bible, it's clear that Moses is a man who makes rash decisions rooted in unchecked anger. Sometimes it's understandable, like when he kills the Egyptian slavedriver. That anger came from witnessing an act of brutality and injustice. While it might be too dark to show in a movie aimed at families, there is still a missing complexity in making the slavedriver's death just an accident. Even when speaking to God HIMSELF, Moses is impatient and frustrated that he is chosen for the mission to free his people. It's also worth mentioning that Moses's anger has him smash the original tablets of the Ten Commandments and order the slaughter of those who forged the Golden Calf (save for a few, who did so under coercion). According to Maimonides, this anger is what kept him from entering the Promised Land but, due to his noble deeds and enduring faith, he is allowed to see it from a mountaintop on the day of his death. While fair to mention that the movie ends almost EXACTLY at this point (and again would be FAR too dark to show in a family movie), it does dilute Moses as a complex individual. Extreme anger not only demonstrates that Moses is a flawed character, it's also what drives his story forward. While it doesn't ruin such a MARVELOUS film, it still sacrifices an element of the Exodus story that would've had great potential as a character study.
20:48 I almost cried when he said that. I'm so happy that Jonathan agrees, because not many people agree with me on that. Out of all the people that I hate, I don't think there's one that I didn't love at some point and/or still love. The ones I have the deepest hatred for, are also the ones I have/had the deepest love for. Hatred is such a strong, intense feeling. Can't feel hate when you never cared in the first place.

And so it was, that in their minds; glyphs, runes, words had power - to record a thing, and have others comprehend it was to evoke it, even invoke it. That's why they carved their records in stone - it wasn't just history, it was magic. The bond between the living shapes in your mind, and the marks on the wall was spiritual - if you learned the magic, then the dead could speak to you in their own words, you could see the populous rise and fall of cities in sped or slowed time, know the yield of yesteryear's harvest down to the final grain of rye long after the counters had forgotten. So when the king says "If I say it, it will be written." - it's not just about twisting the historical record as we think of it. If the thing is written, then that is how it is - the recording of a thing shapes the reality of it. (Edit: This also applied to curses. I don't remember exactly, but an example is their euphemisms for "death". "He passed beyond the veil." or "He went down the long river." wasn't just the scribe being poetic - the word for *DEATH* wasn't a thing that sane men just casually wrote down, it could very well bring it - to you or your family if read or written.)

Hot dang this was healing. I haven't talked to my sister for about 8 years now. She has almost killed both my parents and caused the early death of my grandma. She in her mind is the victim. Always has been. She has two kids I also haven't seen in 8 years, and I am the only aunt they will ever have. I have guilt for removing her from my life because I wish I knew her kids. But she is sick. She is undiagnosed with something. I CAN'T have her in my life for my mental health, and for the safety of my family. It sucks. But this video took some of that guilt away. Thank you.

The talk about just because you love someone, doesn't mean you can't let them go or need them in ur life made me so teary eyed. Because I went through this, I still kinda am. Months ago, almost a year ago now I had lost someone. They were the one who cut ties with me I guess just because we weren't meant. We both were ok people. It's just we weren't ok people to eachother. It was mainly my fault we had to break ties. But moving on from that, I miss them everyday still. But that's not gonna stop. I will always miss them, but I won't always sit here missing them, wishing I don't things different. I have to let them go. I still love them. But I can love them, and still not be connected with them anymore.

Reminds me of how I still love my dad, but can no longer bring myself to have him in my life. I have cut off contact, but he still tries to contact me every now and then. He’s someone who’s never changed ever since I was a child. He wasn’t abusive physically, but definitely took a toll mentally and emotionally on me and my family. He thought doing the bare minimum as a parent was enough. I never developed a genuine relationship with him. He was a dad that was there physically at least, but not actually there though. Things had to always go his way. I feel the same about my grandparents too. Toxic as hell. I think I did what was best for myself. My brother doesn’t talk to him anymore either, but my sister does.

Well stated. I like to forgive and move forward, but I will always make my voice be known. I will speak up for myself and others. Truth must always be known never swept under. | Aside from that many have done major wrongs to me. I forgiven them yet still want nothing to do with them. Example: People who made me cry to the point I cry to Christ to take me home... to that of those who abused me... those who gang-stalked me because of a certain female from my first workplace... Those are the people I can forgive and Not want reconnection. Apart from the toxic, I met many who were decent and nice. Am grateful to them. Some from last workplace [OB] like kyle/kat/Andra/ Etc. (Those are but a few I name) Same with bookstore which was amazing, always. (except for one boss who spoke to me like child after speaking up about being autistic...)

@ianrose6218 2 yıl önce
@@johnmartin4119 That may be true in a way. However, forcing the student who's bullied to forgive the people who are hurting them only works when the bullies acknowledge that what they're doing is needlessly harmful to another person and try to meet in the middle. It's the difference between what I would call religious forgiveness and personal forgiveness. You can personally forgive someone who's bullying you by not holding on to your anger, but that decision is your own to make. Forcing someone to forgive a person when the initial effects are still being felt can create dangerous mental connections. Especially when this is done by an adult figure... it opens up to the unfortunate implication that bullies will always exist, that they're not required to get better, and that we should just put up with everything thrown in our direction by forgiving them and walking away. It's the duty of the students, parents, and teachers of young children to educate bullies on the long-lasting effects of the way they treat others. Toxic adults are often born from toxic children who were never taught that their harmful actions have real consequences. They tend to flock to others who share their views, which creates justification in their adult minds that's incredibly hard to break after it sets in. And don't even get me started on the whole "They're on the football team, so they're above reproach for their shitty behavior" attitude that was present in my schooling.

@@ianrose6218 agreed, but again given the age of kids in elementary school, this is usually the age where they’re supposed to learn about the nature forgiveness, the importance of it, and of course how when you’ve done something wrong that you need to sincerely apologize and work to be better so as not to repeat toxic behaviors. I’m not saying every bully in every situation deserves forgiveness but it is something that needs to be taught and practiced at a young age so children can learn the value of forgiveness and not hold onto resentment

It is a great story because it is real and there is no need to say "this is a Bible movie but it is for everyone" because the Bible is for everyone, it is about the relationship between God and us and how we wreck it but, in His Love for us, He shows the way (and does most of the work) for us to come back to Him. The Grace of God that can be drawn from the Bible is within reach of all humanity and He gave everyone the choice to embrace Him or not (Dt 11:26). May God bless you and show you the way through Jesus Christ.

I love that part when Jono talked about family members not being able to agree on something but still being able to be there for each other. It reminded me a lot of the discussion I had with my family. My sister is a very passionate vegan and regularly protesting for better treatment of animals in the meat and dairy industry. The rest of us all eat meat and refuse to cut it out of our diet. While we acknowledge that animals can be treated better, we don't want to live solely on a vegan diet. And we dont care for the animals on the same level as my sister does. We'll never agree on that matter. But we can discuss about things, respecting each other's opinions and even if we don't change our minds, we're still very close. If we meet for lunch, my sister always prepares her own meal separately and eats with us.

In the song the Plagues there is a lyric that hits so hard “And even now I wish that God, Had chose another Serving as your foe on his behalf, Is the last thing that I wanted” is that Moses never wanted to be the one to go against Remeses because he still loved his brother and going against a sibbling you love so dear is very hard.
@anjelica948 7 aylar önce
Jono was so right when he said “Hatred comes from love.” My father was extremely abusive, but even as he hurt and terrified me, I continued to love him- until I realized that the pain of loving him, and consequently the continual pain and betrayal of being hurt by him, was too much to endure, and then I developed hate for him, as a means of protecting myself. But I definitely would not have had that magnitude of feeling for the man had I not loved him first. And for me, the saddest thing is that I have very few memories from my childhood (thanks trauma), but I do still have memories of good, seemingly loving moments with my father. But they are always tainted, overshadowed, and poisoned, with my father’s abuse. And sadly, had it not been for my eventual hatred of the man, I don’t think I would have ever broken free of him.
@yunfeikwon 23 gün önce
As someone who has similar experience I really sympathize with your struggles. From my personal experience, I applied different coping mechanism to ease my trauma and well it kinda works so what I'm trying to say is don't ever give up to heal yourself because you're worthy to be born. And all of us deserve love and happiness, even if some of us accidentally having bad parent won't ever change that sole fact.

I've never seen a movie as well made as The Prince of Egypt. it is objectively the best animated movie to exist. not only does it tell one of the best Bible stories, but it is so well written that even people who are not Christian love this movie. To us Christians, it's a faithful retelling of the story of Moses, a man chosen by God to free an entire country of Hebrews from the harsh slavery of Pharaoh and his Egyptians, and how they find their salvation. to _everyone,_ it's a story about two brothers who are torn apart by their beliefs. it's such a captivating story, all brought together by the absolutely stunning visuals and animation, the brilliant acting of every single person in this movie, the phenomenal musical numbers and soundtrack, the messages of forgiveness and love, as well as resentment and hate, and of course, the faithfulness to the Biblical story it is portraying. bless the hands that created this movie
