Was Moses' Father-In-Law A Kenite?
Page 3

Reuel and Raguel were the proper names of Mosesí father-in-law. Jethro was the name of his official title as Midian priest. His Excellence is called Reuel in Exodus 2:16-22. He is called Raguel in Numbers 10:29. Both names have the same meaning, ĎFriend of God.í (Strongís #7467) Letís go to the book of Judges and allow the scripture to continue to tear down this altar of lies that is associated with faithful Abrahamís descendants.

Judges 4:11-Now Heber the Kenite, which was of the children of Hobab the father in law of Moses, had severed himself from the Kenites, and pitched his tent unto the plain of Zaanaim, which is by Kedesh.

If you just read the scripture above without doing the necessary research into the genealogies of the people that you are studying, then you, like many other Christians, would come to the wrong conclusion concerning Heberís true bloodline. Heber was the son of Hobab, who was the son of Raguel, who was Mosesí father-in-law. This just goes to prove that Heberís identity as a Kenite was based solely on his residency in their land. To Heberís credit, once he realized the wickedness of the Kenite people, he left their land and moved his tent to Zaanaim.

Numbers 10:29-And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel the Midianite, Moses father in law.

In conclusion of this study I would like to warn all Christians that they are not obligated to blindly believe and not question the teaching of their pastor, if that teaching is contrary to Godís word. Jesus told us to be fruit inspectors and test doctrinally what we are taught (Matthew 7:15-20). The sin for believing lies will ultimately be your burden to carry, and I assure you that your pastor will not be able to stand in your defense when you are judged on that day. He will have his own problems to deal with if he continues to teach falsely. So the next time any preacher tries to feed you this lie about Mosesí father-in-law and the Kenite connection, tell them to document it in Godís word as this Ministry has. I thank you for studying with Men As Trees Teaching Ministry and encourage you to view some of the other Bible studies on this website.
