Obviously, changes were made to the story to make it work as an animated feature. Here is a short list of differences between the movie and the Biblical account of the Exodus.
- 1. Moses was "adopted" by Pharaoh's daughter, not his wife.
- 2. Moses murdered the Egyptian slave master and even tried to hide his body. He did not kill him by accident.
- 3. Aaron supported Moses from the beginning and even helped perform some of the miracles of God. Aaron did not doubt Moses.
4. It was Aaron who turned his staff into a snake and turned the water of the Nile to blood, not Moses. See more

Deliver us, hear our call, deliver us, Lord of all! Remember us, here in this burning sand! Deliver us, there's a land you promised us! Deliver us to the promised land!
