Happy New Year Pastor Jack!

Interesting article on Moses. I find it rather paradoxical that the most humble man on earth at that time(Num 12:3) had such anger issues.

Usually contention or strife(anger) is a result of pride(Prov 13:10), and yet here we have a man often in contention with the people of God yet humble.

He must have been so dialed into God’s Will for His people that his anger was simply a manifestation of God’s sentiment. Is that how you reconcile the two?

Thank you for the contemplative look into the life of a remarkable workman of the Lord.

I know what you mean sir. I think of the late Andre the Giant, if you can remember him. He was a monstrous man but very humble (and they say) extraordinarily meek but would anyone ever think of him as weak? I think I would probably not even be able to be as patient as Moses was. I should have included this but God called Moses to bring His people out of Egyptian slavery and that purpose was fulfilled and perhaps Joshua, a bit younger, would be needed because I am not sure Moses could have done as much for the next couple of decades what Joshua did. Ultimately, I just don’t know but I know he’s there today! May God richly bless you my friend.

I am glad you mentioned Joshua. Yes, he and Caleb were the only two of the twelve spies to make it through the 40 year forced march in the wilderness, as a result of their faith in God.

Do you believe Moses used Joshua for his scribe? We credit Moses with writing the first five books of the Bible, inspired by the Holy Spirit, but there also is included a record of Moses’s death and events surrounding it. This mention in Numbers of his humility might have been entered by a third party inspired by God also.

Do you believe Moses “pre-wrote” the details surrounding his own death or that he commanded Joshua(or someone else) to fill in these details, postmortem?
