    I love the very obvious symbolism in the leaves of the Burning Bush.

    Beautiful photo Fr Justin!
    I have question about Exodus 33, where God placed Moses in a cleft of the rock, as He passed by. The Babylonian Talmud mentions Moses possibly saw God wearing a crown or a tephillin. It symbolizes that we should carry Gods words with us, everywhere we go. Are there any other texts found verifying this account?

      The classic text on this passage is in the Orations of Saint Gregory the Theologian. God as He is in His essence transcends our perception or understanding, even as He reveals His majesty and His glory to those who draw near to Him.
