Was Moses' Father-In-Law A Kenite?
Written by Maurice Wright

The name ‘Kenite’ in Hebrew means: "a member of the tribe of Kajin." (Strong’s #7017)

The name ‘Kajin’ in Hebrew means: "the name of the first child: Cain." (Strong’s #7014)

The Jewish Encyclopedia Volume #7: "According to Biblical data, the Kenites were a nomadic clad which settled on the southern border of Judah. Their eponymous ancestor was Cain to those descendants in Genesis 4:21-22. Attributes the invention of the arts of working bronze and iron, and the use of instruments of music, etc." [Ktav Publishing House, Inc]

In this study of "Was Moses father in law a Kenite" it will be documented according to scripture, that Moses’ father-in-law was in fact a Midian priest and direct descendant of Abraham by his wife Keturah. This righteous priest was called a Kenite in the scripture because he lived in the land of the Kenites. He was not; I repeat, was not blood related to this serpent seed. In the biblical days of old, the people of that time historically identified themselves by the land in which they lived. For instance, Moses was a Hebrew of the tribe of Levi, but he was called an Egyptian in the scripture because he once lived in the land of Egypt (1 Chronicles 6:1-3 & Exodus 2:1-19). So the question that I ask you is do we continue to call Moses an Egyptian, or do we rightfully identify this law giver as an Hebrew who inhabited the land of Egypt?

The word Egyptian defined by Webster’s Dictionary means, "native or inhabitant of Egypt."

Satan is content to stay silent concerning this mistaken identity if you continue to believe the lie. By attaching the righteous name of Moses’ father-in-law to his polluted seed line, than you help Satan to hide the Kenites true identity. Only in the scripture can the truth be told, so let us go directly to Genesis and read with understanding the true bloodline of this Midian priest.

Genesis. 25:1-2-Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Ke-tu’-rah. And she bare him Zim’-ran, and Jok’-shan, and Me’-dan, and Mid’-i-an, and Ish’-bak, and Shu’-ah.
