The Burning Bush
Exodus 3:1 – 4:17
Moses was faithfully tending the flocks of his father-in-law on the far side of the desert. He came to a mountain, which is referred to as the mountain of God. It was there on this mountain that God called to Moses out of a burning bush. The text tells us: “that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up” (Exodus 3:3). And even more specifically, “there the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush” (Exodus 3:2 emphasis mine). Moses’ curiosity drew him to this strange phenomenon.
