NOTES: When Moses met God at the burning bush, Moses's staff became an object of power (Exodus 4;2-3) -- e.g. he turned it into a snake before the Egyptians, though in that instance, it was Aaron, not Moses, who threw it down (Exodus 7:8-11). The confusion over who had the Super De Luxe Staff continues throughout the Pentateuch, but it is certainly Moses's staff which was used to part the Red Sea (Exodus 14:16). - RBW
