Moses and the Burning Bush

Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn upSo Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.” When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!” And Moses said, “Here I am.”   “Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” Then he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God. Ex 3:1-6

The word for bush in Ex 3:2 is “seneh” meaning a thorny bush. In Gen 3:18 we are told that thorns were part of the curse for Adam’s sin. Trees or wood in the Bible symbolize humanity. When Jesus healed the blind man he first saw people like trees. In the tabernacle (Mk 8:24), the ark was made of wood and overlaid with gold (Ex 25:10,11). This was a picture of Jesus’ humanity (wood) and His Deity (gold).

A consuming fire (Dt 4:24; Heb 12:29) is a picture of God’s judgment on sinners (Heb 6:8). However, this bush was not consumed (Ex 3:2), similar to Dan 3:25 where Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were not consumed while the “Son of Man” was seen with them in the fire representing God’s grace.

Moses was told to take off his sandals because he was standing on holy ground (Ex 3:5 God’s presence). The priests that ministered at the altar had to wash their feet before serving at the altar, so they would not die (Ex 30:17-20). Their altar fire had to be continuously burning (Lev 6:13). Jesus washed the disciples’ feet and related this to spiritual cleansing (Jn 13:8-10).

In summary, humanity represented by the thorn bush is cursed because of Adam’s sin and the result will be destruction. However, God’s grace in the form of the non-consuming fire saves humanity from eternal death whenever an individual places his or her faith in Jesus’ sacrifice. We are declared holy (Heb 10:10) represented by Moses taking off his sandals and we can enter boldly into the Holy of Holies because of Jesus’ finished work (Heb 10:19).
