Getting the Message: 4:1-9


 We have observed in the book of Exodus that God makes plain his purposes to Moses; what he is going to do, why he is doing it, and what the result will be. God appeared to Moses in the burning bush. He told Moses his name, that he is “I am”, meaning that he has always existed, always will, and is infinitely over his creation. 

Getting the Message: 3:13-15

In this passage God reveals his name to Moses. God had told Moses he was sending him to Egypt to bring the children of Israel out. Moses no doubt had many questions. The one he voices in verse 13 is when the people of Israel ask what your name is what am I to tell them?
