Hi folks,

Could someone direct me to the right search criteria to use to find all the different ways Moses is referred to in the Bible, for example he is called a Prince and a Judge in Ex. 2.14. I am sure there is an easy way to do this! I have found the 'referred to as' section in the Factbook which is very helpful but seems incomplete.

Many thanks.

The Factbook referred to section is what I would use

Dan:

when you say "incomplete" are you thinking of the verse you mentioned (Ex 2:14) or something else?

The issue there is that the word "ruler" isn't tagged as Moses, it is simply tagged with "A Leader" which is why you don't find it in the Factbook entry

I guess, speculating here, that the reason it has been tagged this way is that Moses isn't actually being referred to as a leader here. In fact, the person speaking is speaking against this idea.

Are there other passages you think are missing?

Hi Graham,

Thanks for your reply and input, it is very kind. I was thinking of prince and judge in Ex. 2.14 and also the same in Acts 7.35. Moses is also referred to as a 'husband' or 'bridegroom of blood' in Ex. 4.25 too, but again, I note that the tagging is here is not Moses. I suppose I was wondering if there is a search help that could be used to find these.

Even when the tagging is not missing a search query is difficult. The simplest I can come up with is:

<Person Moses> ANDEQUALS you

as the addressee is usually Moses e.g. "you" as God in Ex 4:16 as well as Ex 2:14, 4:25

Some of the quirks of Logos tags are revealed by the failure of <Person Moses> NOTEQUALS (he, his,him,"Moses",you)

Hi Dan,

The referents for "prince" and "judge" in Ex. 2.14, as well as that of “bridegroom of blood” in Ex. 4.25 should indeed be "Moses". Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We will make these corrections as soon as possible.

Regards,

Josh

Thanks everyone for your help, and thank you Josh for the feedback.

Perhaps you might also note that Moses is called a 'priest' in Psa. 99.6 and a 'mediator' in Gal. 3.19 and 'shepherd' in Isa. 63.11 although they're a little obscure. Smile
