Did Moses have more than one wife?
Topic(s): Old Testament
Did Moses have more than one wife? According to my study, Moses only had one wife - Zipporah. You may read of her in Exodus 4:25, and also read of Zipporah and Jethro (Moses' father-in-law) in Exodus 2:16-22; 3:1; 18.
In Numbers 10:29, there is a reference to Raguel who is identified as Moses' father-in-law. Most commentators believe Jethro and Raguel to be the same person. Others (e.g., Albert Barnes) note the use of father in law may be used to indicate nothing more than related by marriage, thus Raguel could have been Moses' grandfather or uncle by marriage.
