At first sight one could say that biblical texts on Moses are
simple and that they make a harmonious unity. But, to a careful
reader, the same texts can present difficulties of various
kinds, literary, historical and religious. In this work we are not
searching for either Moses of Yahweh tradition or of any other
tradition, but we want to reveal the Moses of manifold traditions
and themes, such as presented in biblical texts.
Not only do the texts about Moses bring the old historical
memories, but also they reflect what Israel expected of their leader
and founder. In such a manifoldness of Moses’ figure one
can ask: “Who is the real Moses and what is he like?” In our
texts four documents give a theological view of his person. They
show that there is difference between the historical Moses and
Moses of faith. It is difficult to reach and explain that historical
Moses. Trying to reach the historical level at any cost, we may
fail to see that, to the reader believer, the Moses of faith is within
his reach. We should never forget that the Bible, first of all,
speaks about that and such Moses.
