How Long Did Moses Live?

According to the Christian Bible, Moses was 120 years old when he died. In the classic biblical story, Moses was the adopted Prince of Egypt who was responsible for freeing the Israelites from Egyptian slavery.

Although Moses was not the longest-living figure in the Christian Bible, a 120-year lifespan is still considerably longer than the modern human lifespan. During the course of his 120 years, Moses was known as a lawmaker and was responsible for carrying the stone tablets containing the Ten Commandments down from the mountaintop where, according to the story, God passed down a series of rules and laws for the Israelites to follow.
