    This is NOT a rebuke; simply a statement: Moses was not a Levite; his brother Aaron and his sons were; Aaron was the only one could go into the Holy of Holies. Moses was just a GREAT prophet and FRIEND of God.
  • Matt
    Moses was a ''type'' of Christ, not a god at all, period. He was a Levite, and was chosen to instruct the Israelites to worship God, and to prepare the way for our Savior. Jesus Christ, The Savior, is the only begotten Son of God: God Himself manifested in the flesh. The Prophet Moses wrote of in this chapter is Jesus. The Lord says this to the Pharisee Jews in John ch. 5: "for he wrote of Me."

    God is the father Jesus is the only begotten son and word of God in the flesh John CH 1 Moses is NOT a god but a chosen vessel and his brother Arron went with him are you calling him a god to? Read the story and you will have your answer.
