Reflection Questions
  • Moses became the “son” of Pharaoh’s daughter, and “was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians.” Do the acts, attitudes, and choices of Moses recounted here reflect this filial relationship, or do they seem to deny it? Explain in terms of his enculturation.

  • What is the difference, for cross-cultural evangelism, between “initial socialization” and “resocialization”?

  • How are people initially enculturated? Is it possible for a cross-cultural worker to be socialized or enculturated into a new culture? Why or why not?
