It is interesting in the reference in Exodus 33:20 "And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live." So I think this could be a pre-incarnate form of Christ in Ex 33:11 "And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend." That through Jesus Christ we have access to God and that they are One.

God can appear to men in whatever form He wishes. Another instance that comes to mind is when He appeared to Abraham as a man, after which Abraham was immediately prompted to fall down to his face, yet he didn't die (I think that's on Gen 18). As for Ex 33:20, highlighted in the question, follows Moses request in v. 18, which reads: 18 And he said, Let ...

tl;dr> Why was it recorded like that? because the story is making a theological point, not a legal one Is this the norm or the exception? the exact particulars of Boaz are exception, but it is based on a normal practice Is there any other recorded incident in the Scriptures where this was done and the lineage was accorded to the deceased person? ...

The answer to this question is really quite interesting. The truth is, we don't know for sure. There is evidence for either location. Without a doubt however, Jewish and Islamic traditions put the tomb of the twelve patriarchs in Hebron. A mosque was erected during Saladin's time on top of the tombs where they are believed to be. However Stephen clearly ...

The Greek text of John 3:13 according to Robert Estienne’s 1550 Textus Receptus states, καὶ οὐδεὶς ἀναβέβηκεν εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν εἰ μὴ ὁ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καταβάς ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ὁ ὤν ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ which is translated as, And no one ascended into heaven except he who descended out of heaven, the Son of man who is in heaven.

The following OT and NT [RSVCE] passages indicate that some men shall see God in the future. Job 19:26 [And] after my skin has been thus destroyed, then from my flesh I shall see God[.] Psalm 11:7 For the Lord is righteous, he loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold his face. Psalm 42:2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. ...

Matthew 5:8 – "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." Also, the apostles and others around him in his day saw Jesus, so yes, man can see God.

Very few people have ever seen God. The examples cited by other answerers and commenters were all, I think, prophets. Before Jesus arrived on earth, the Jews had already begun to reject prophets, and even to kill some prophets.

What evidence is there within the Bible that a man can or cannot see God? We know that Genesis 32:30 unambiguously says that Jacob saw God: "And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face." We also know that Exodus 33:11 says that Moses saw God face to face: "And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh ...

The two verses are in apparent contradiction. The sages explain that one should not be drawn into vain arguments with a fool in worldly or inconsequential matters. However, if he disputes or errs regarding the Torah, it is essential that he be corrected.. So in light of this, it is not a contradiction. You just have to understand when you answer a fool, ...

There was a simultaneous creation of man (male) and woman (female).In the second creation story, a man was created before the animals, and later on a woman was created. In the first creation ...

In addition to the census there is information regarding the lunar eclipse. According to EarthSky: Each calendar year has at least four eclipses – two solar and two lunar. Most years have four, but five, six or even seven eclipses are also possible. Does it say anywhere wether the eclipse was full? I couldn't be sure since we cannot know how long it took to ...
