Shemos Question 1

Weekly Parsha Questions

Shemos Question 1

Yechiel Shaffer

What are the first words Moshe say to God (Shemos 3:11)?

Rashi comments on these words:

רש”י שמות פרשת שמות פרק ג

יא) מי אנכי – מה אני חשוב לדבר עם המלכים

11. Who am I: Of what importance am I that I should speak with kings?

Which king is Rashi referring to? Could there be a deeper meaning in Moshe’s response to God?

What could be the motivation for Moshe’s hesitation in fulfilling this command (See Ksav VeHakabbalah ad. loc.)?

How does this response shape Moshe’s identity as a leader and the greatest prophet to have ever lived?
