Noah was the tenth descendant from Adam and is known as the father of all humanity. According to biblical accounts, Noah’s life was spared for his piety when God destroyed the world with a flood that lasted 40 days and nights. Noah had been warned to build an ark and to take his wife, three sons – Shem, Ham and Japheth and their wives plus two of every species of animal on earth with him into the ark. After the covenant was made, Noah was said to have lived to the ripe old age of 950 (Genesis 9:29)

Moses (ES894) Nutcracker

Moses was a Hebrew prophet and leader of the Israelites. Before Moses was born in Egypt, the Pharaoh ordered all Hebrew male infants to be put to death. To save her child’s life, Moses’ mother placed him in a basket and sent him floating down the Nile River. He was rescued by none other than the daughter of the Pharaoh who brought up Moses as her own. One day God appeared to Moses and commanded him to deliver his people from the hands of the Pharaoh and lead them to the Promised Land. Moses led the people to Mount Sinai where he received two tablets of stone with the Ten Commandments, the fundamental laws of the Hebrews.

In 1997 Steinbach introduced the second member of the Steinbach Biblical Nutcracker Series, Moses (ES894) Nutcracker. As seen in the picture Moses has just received the Tablets from God. He was limited to 10,000 pieces.

Joseph and His Dreamcoat (ES1810) Nutcracker

According to biblical accounts, the figure of Joseph was the favorite son of Jacob. As a symbol of Jacob’s love, he gave Joseph a magnificent coat of many colors. As most of Israel was wearing drab, pale clothing at the time, you can see that Joseph surly stood out among the crowd! His jealous brothers sold poor Joseph as a slave in Egypt. Through his talent for dream analysis and story- telling, Joseph elevated himself and became an important advisor to the Pharaoh of Egypt. By analyzing the Pharaoh’s dream, Joseph predicted an upcoming famine and was able to save all of Egypt from destruction. The story ends on a pleasant note when Joseph is reunited with his brothers (having forgiven them) and his father who was devastated when he thought Joseph was dead.

Joseph and His Dreamcoat (ES1810) Nutcracker, continued the popular Steinbach Biblical Nutcracker Series as it honored and celebrated another wonderful and famous biblical character in 1998. This nutcracker is the third in the series, stands 15 and ½ inches tall and was a limited edition nutcracker at 7,500 pieces.
