Wow, what a massive task! Moses stands about as ’tall’ as Jesus in the Bible. Some Jews regard Moses as higher than Jesus.
The Torah, the first five books of the Bible: ’The Books of Moses’ are sacred to Jews. They are the laws of God, given to Moses and written down by him. They contain The Decalogue (The Ten Commandments) and thousands of verses on how God was to be honoured and the ways to properly worship Him – and thousands of verses of instructions on how to live together in peace and how to settle disputes. King David’s son, King Solomon was in God’s presence on two occasions but Moses was the specially chosen as God’s special man.
Today there is a ‘Blockbuster’ movie that will never ‘grow old’ because it is so well done in telling Bible history and the part Moses played in it. Cecil B. De Mille produced the movie: The Ten Commandments. He stands very ‘tall’ in movie making and has done so for 60 years. This movie is still regarded as one of the ’all time greats’ of the movie world.
When Jesus was here on earth, Moses came back with the prophet Elijah and both were talking with Jesus on a mountain. Christians now call that mountain; the Mount of Transfiguration. Peter James and John were there and saw Moses and Elijah talking with Jesus. Moses had been dead for over 500 years. God’s voice split the clouds and He said: ‘This is my beloved Son whom I love and am well pleased, listen to him.’ (that’s in Matthew chapter 17 verses 1 to 9). The disciples were terrified at God’s voice and later, coming down the mountain, Jesus said to the three of them: ‘Tell nobody of this until I have risen from the dead.’ Not too many leaders in history have said things like that!!
I often wonder just what Moses gets up to in Heaven. I mean he had been dead 500 years then…and now it’s 2512 years?
