Seeing The Ten Commandments In The Burning Bush

Was The Burning Bush A Template For The Commandments?

Rabbi David Fohrman

In Parshat Yitro, we read about Moses receiving the Ten Commandments. But there’s something very unique about the text in this section – it’s strikingly similar to an earlier story, namely, Moses and the Burning Bush. Is there a parallel that’s meant to be drawn between the stories of Moses, the Ten Commandments and the Burning Bush?

Join Rabbi Fohrman as he re-examines both texts and learns how the Burning Bush may actually serves as a template for the Ten Commandments. Through this comparison, we start to see a deeper spiritual meaning behind the story of the burning bush.
