* GodIsGood: The all-knowing, all-powerful creator of the universe is here represented by a soft, beautiful white fire. The fire speaks to Moses in the most familiar, soothing voice it can must: Moses's. Not only that, but the fire surrounds Moses without hurting him and leaves him in a blissful state of awe.

** Rameses' father describes him as the "weak link" in a chain. Moses' time is from 1,400BC until 1,200BC, however, chains of metal construct in the sense that he's talking about weren't around until at least 255BC. So this is either taking liberties with history or linguistics. The figurative phrase "weakest link" wasn't even established ''until the 18th Century''. Could also be a rough translation of a then-current phrase that means essentially the same thing - especially since modern English itself wouldn't actually exist for almost 2,500 years

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: {{God}}. A point made at several times in the Old Testament, and referenced when Moses is speaking to the Burning Bush, is that God is so far above humanity that we can not comprehend His actions. When Moses questions why he is being selected, God explicitly states that He has done so much more than Moses will ever even be able to conceive.

A point made at several times in the Old Testament (especially referenced in the Literature/BookOfJob,) and referenced when Moses is speaking to the Burning Bush, is that God's knowledge is so much vaster than any mere humans that no one can fully comprehend his actions. When Moses questions why he is being selected to free the Israelites, God explicitly states that He has done so much more than Moses will ever even be able to conceive.

* Catch22Dilemma: Rameses, in his desire to avoid being the "weak link" his father dismissed him as. On one hand, if he frees the Hebrews, he'll go down in time as the king who willingly gave away the main source of labor on which Egypt's power and overall magnificence greatly depends. On the other hand, if he fights to keep the Hebrews as slaves, Egypt is destroyed by God and the plagues. Either way, he, his legacy, and his dynasty's legacy, are completely fucked. Although, given that history remembers him as "the great" and his reign marks the absolute pinnacle of Egypt's power, authority and glory, maybe he doesn't do ''too'' badly.
