For the Lesson titled “God” from December 30 - January 5, 2014
“I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee” (Exodus 33:19). Those words of God to Moses, to whom God spoke “face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend” (Exodus 33:11), are included in the first citation of Section 1 in the Bible Lesson titled “God.” Throughout this Lesson we see God speaking “face to face,” revealing His goodness in ways that let us know His voice is present and active today.
God speaking with Moses doesn’t mean God took on some human form or that Moses necessarily heard a physical voice. Symbolically, “face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend” means that Moses understood God clearly, easily—that he was communing with God naturally and comfortably.
