When we come across Moses wandering through the wilderness, caring for the flock of his father-in-law Jethro, we are not told how often he has come to this particular place. Although the text calls it the mountain of the Lord, it is clear that is anachronistic – it only becomes worthy of that designation as a result of the amazing events that we hear today and even more so after the events that will unfold in the months ahead for Moses. Now, this place just happens to be where Moses is wandering around. It just happens to be where he finds a bush that is burning – but not being consumed. It is enough to attract his attention!
