The Burning Bush Bible Story Lesson
Moses and the Burning Bush Story Explained

We're back with another exciting issue of Daily Bread! In our last story, we were introduced to Moses, and we learned that the Lord heard the cries of distress from His people who were enslaved in Egypt.

Moses took care of his father-in-law Jethro's flock and he led the sheep to the edge of the desert up to the mountain of God called Horeb. The angel of the Lord appeared to him there in a flame of fire out of the middle of a bush, and when Moses looked at the bush, it wasn't burned.

Well, this was all very amazing to Moses, so he started to go and get a closer look at it. When the Lord saw Moses coming nearer to see, God called to him out of the middle of the bush and said, Moses, Moses. Moses answered, Here I am.

The Lord said, Don't come any closer. Take your shoes off, because the place where you're standing is holy ground. I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Moses hid his face because he was afraid to look at God.

The Lord said, I've seen the suffering of my people in Egypt and I've come down to deliver (save) them from the Egyptians and to lead them into a good and large land that is flowing with milk and honey, which is the land of the Canaanites and the Hittites, and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Hivites, and the Jebusites (descendants of Ham and Canaan).

Then the Lord told Moses, Come now, I will send you to Pharaoh so you can bring my people, the children of Israel out of Egypt.

You can imagine the surprise if you were Moses. Here you are, out walking the sheep, a normal day, just moseying along the mountainside and then within a few minutes, you've seen a burning bush that isn't burnt, you've heard the voice of God, found out that you are standing on God's mountain which is holy ground, shoes off, and you've been volunteered to be God's right hand man in rescuing an entire people from the bondage of the rich and powerful nation of Egypt which you are, by the way, in hiding from because of a murder that you committed there some time ago. Whew, quite a day.

Naturally, Moses has cold feet, no pun intended, and says, Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and that I should bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?

God said, Certainly I'll be with you, and this will be a sign to you that I have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will serve God on this very mountain. And Moses asked God, When I go to the children of Israel and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, they'll ask me, What is His name? What should I tell them?

The Burning Bush Bible Story Warning
Moses and the Burning Bush Story Teaching

God said I AM THAT I AM: that's what you'll tell them, I AM has sent me to you. The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has sent me to you: This is my name for ever, and this is my memorial to all generations. Go and get the elders of Israel together, and tell them, The Lord appeared to me and said, I have surely visited you, and seen what you're going through in Egypt and I'll bring you out of the misery of Egypt and to the Promised Land, a land flowing with milk and honey.

And God said to Moses, They'll listen to your voice and you'll go with the elders of Israel to the king of Egypt and you'll say to him, The Lord God of the Hebrews has met with us. Now let us go, we ask you, three days journey into the wilderness so we can sacrifice to the Lord our God. And I'm sure that the king of Egypt won't let you go, and he'll strongly protest.

God said, And I'll stretch out my hand and strike Egypt with all my wonders that I will do in the middle of it, and after that, he'll let you go. And the people of Egypt will approve of the children of Israel leaving and when you go, you will not go empty handed, but every woman will get from her neighbor and whoever visits her home, jewels of silver and gold, and clothing, and you will put them on your sons and daughters and you will spoil the Egyptians.
