Asked in Old Testament, Moses
Is Moses a child of God?
The answer is simple...we are all children of God...Moses was a man born completely of the flesh of both parents and not devine...There is also a story that the Angel of Death was instructed by God to take Moses' life but Moses turned the Angel away... Bismillah (In the name of God) Sahih Bukhari Volume 2, Book 23, Number 423: Narrated Abu Huraira: The angel of death was sent to Moses and when he went to him, Moses slapped him severely, spoiling one of his eyes. The angel went back to his Lord, and said, "You sent me to a slave who does not want to die." Allah restored his eye and said, "Go back and tell him (i.e. Moses) to place his hand over the back of an ox, for he will be allowed to live for a number of years equal to the number of hairs coming under his hand." (So the angel came to him and told him the same). Then Moses asked, "O my Lord! What will be then?" He said, "Death will be then." He said, "(Let it be) now." He asked Allah that He bring him near the Sacred Land at a distance of a stone's throw. Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) said, "Were I there I would show you the grave of Moses by the way near the red sand hill."

Who appeared to Moses in the burning bush?
The burning bush was the manifestation of God in physical form. God did not actually appear to Moses in the burning bush, but spoke to him from the flames. The angel appeared to Moses: Exodus 3 2- And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. 3And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 4And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. 5And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. 6Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God. The burning bush was not God appearing to Moses in a physical form. The Angel of Jehovah was. once again if you follow through with the theme of the Angel of Jehovah you will see He is not in the order of created beings but that He was indeed the true Manifestation of Jehovah God. No where in the book of Exodus is the Angel of Jehovah quoted as saying anything but we can conclude He was doing all the talking. When Jehovah God said He speaks to Moses face to face as with a man, the Angel was speaking to Him. The Angel was in the cloud: Exo 14:19 And the Angel of God withdrew, the One going before the camp of Israel. And He went behind them. And the pillar of cloud withdrew from before them, and it stood behind them. How do we know that this Angel is Jehovah?In verse 24 Exo 14:24 And it came to pass, that in the morning watch, Jehovah looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians, The burning bush was the place that Jehovah spoke from in the form of the Angel of Jehovah and He also appeared to Moses in that form. The burning bush was not an appearance of Jehovah but merely the place that got Moses attention. Num 14:14 And they will say to the one living in this land, They have heard that You, Jehovah, are in the midst of this people, who is seen eye to eye. You are Jehovah, and Your cloud stands over them; in a pillar of cloud You go before them by day, and in a pillar of fire by night.

Who was the Angel of Jehovah in the burning bush appearing to Moses?
It was God and not a angel in the burning bush. I'm afraid that is not the answer sorry to tell you because of this verse! Exo 3:2 And the Angel of Jehovah appeared to him in a flame of fire from the middle of a thorn bush. And he looked, and behold, the thorn bush was burning with fire, and the thorn bush was not burned up!

What are moses' main stories from the bible?
The high points of the Bible including Moses are: The birth of Moses, which includes his mother placing him in a basket and into the Nile River to escape death from Pharaoh Moses' escape from Egypt to Midian, where he rescued the sheep belonging to the daughters of the High Priest. The High Priest invited him to stay and live among them, and Moses married the High Priest's daughter Zipporah and then gave birth to a son Gershom. Moses and the burning bush- while tending to the flocks of sheep, Moses went into the mountains to fetch a stray sheep and came upon a burning bush, through which God spoke to Moses and instructed him to go back to Egypt and lead his people up out of Egypt Moses performed a series of miracles while trying to convince the Pharaoh of Egypt to "let his people go" including turning the Nile into blood. Moses and the angel of death- God instructed Moses and the Hebrews to take the blood of a pure lamb and spread its blood over the door frame; this would save them from the wrath of the angel of death because the angel of death would come over the land and if the blood was present the angel of death would "pass over". Penalties for not doing this resulted in the death of the first born son in every household, which included the son of Pharaoh. Jews continue to celebrate this miracle every year during Passover- remembrance of God delivering the Hebrews from Pharaoh and up out of Egypt and into the Promised Land. Moses parted the Red Sea using his staff- Pharaoh allowed the Hebrews to leave after the death of his son but then quickly changed his mind soon after. The Egyptians followed the Hebrews and planned to corner and attack them at the Red Sea but God blocked the way of the Egyptians and Moses struck the water with his staff and parted the Red Sea- allowing the Hebrews to walk through to the other side, and the Egyptians to be washed away.
Asked in Passover
What holiday is celebrated to remember the angel of death passing through Egypt?
In the time of Moses (prior to the Exodus,) the final plague imposed by G*d on Pharaoh and Egypt was the killing of the first born. It is sometimes called the passing of the Angel of Death. The Hebrew people painted sheep's blood on their door frames as a sign that the Angel should 'pass over' this house. It is remembered at the Passover.

In what book of the Bible will you find. A talking bush?
The bush itself was not talking. It was God who used the bush to get Moses' attention. Moses saw that the bush was on fire, but it was not being burnt, and God's voice spoke to Moses from among the bush. You can find this inExodus Chapter 3. 2And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. 3And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 4And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.
