Basics of Judaism

G-d and Torah

Mt. Sinai and the Burning Bush

Question: What was the difference between  G-d’s revelation to the Jews at Sinai and His revelation at the burning bush.

Answer: There are several differences, but the main differences are:

  1. Moshe (Moses) saw the vision at the Burning Bush alone. The entire nation heard G-d at Sinai. (This is the greatest proof that the Torah is true, because Judaism is the only religion that claims its start with an entire nation hearing G-d).

  2. The revelation at Sinai was on a higher level of revelation than Moshe’s vision at the Bush.

  3. The revelation at Sinai took preparation, the 49 days from leaving Mitzrayim, with the last 3 days being special days of preparation. The vision at the Bush was without preparation.

It should be noted that the Bush was at Mt. Sinai. Also, the word “sneh” which means “bush” is similar to “Sinai“.

All the Best, Rabbi Azriel Schreiber
