JEWISH MAGIC

Moses, the Old Testament Prophet, found himself in a battle of magical powers with the priests of ancient Egypt.

There is a Bible story in Exodus that tells of a magical test between the Egyptians and Jews. Yahweh empowers Moses' shepherding staff with the ability to do great wonders, the greatest being to shepherd his people to freedom. Moses tells Rameses to let his people go, demonstrating the power behind him by changing his shepherding staff into a snake. The Egyptian magicians boastfully repeat this transformation, conjuring many of Egypt's Gods in the process; behind their backs, the snake created by Moses eats both of their snakes.
