O epifanie si problemele ei

Iesirea/Exod – Versiunea Anania Bartolomeu

24:9 Şi s’au suit Moise şi Aaron, Nadab, Abiud şi şaptezeci dintre bătrânii lui Israel

24:10 şi au văzut locul unde stătea Dumnezeul lui Israel(a): sub picioarele Lui era ca un aşternut din lespezi de safir, tot atât de curat precum adâncul cerului.
În Versiunea Ebraică: „L-au văzut pe Dumnezeul lui Israel”; expresie cu totul singulară şi uimitoare, întrucât „nu va putea omul să-Mi vadă faţa (să Mă vadă) şi să trăiască” (33, 20). Textul Septuagintei precizează că oamenii au văzut numai „locul unde stătea Dumnezeu”, anume doar ceea ce părea a fi aşternutul tronului Său (vezi restul versetului).
24:11 Iar dintre aleşii lui Israel nu a pierit nici unul; au fost văzuţi la locul lui Dumnezeu şi au mâncat şi au băut(a).
„Au mâncat şi au băut”: semn că erau vii, dar poate fi vorba şi de un prânz ritual, cu care se încheia de obicei un legământ, o alianţă, un contract, un armistiţiu (vezi alianţa dintre Israel şi Abimelec – Fc 26, 26-31 şi pe aceea dintre Iacob şi Laban – Fc 31, 54).
Biblia Romano-Catolica
24:9 Moise a urcat împreună cu Aaron, Nadab şi Abihu şi cu şaptezeci dintre bătrânii lui Israel.

24:10 Ei l-au văzut pe Dumnezeul lui Israel; sub picioarele lui era ca un paviment de safir, ca însuşi cerul curat.*
24:11 El nu şi-a întins mâna împotriva aleşilor fiilor lui Israel. Ei l-au văzut pe Dumnezeu şi au mâncat şi au băut
Septuaginta (Polirom)
ACCS – Augustine:
What Moses Saw Signified the Trinity.
Moses, of course, might be thought to have seen God with bodily eyes, if not only the Wisdom of God which is Christ but even the wisdom itself … [which] can be seen with the eyes of the flesh, or because it is written of the elders of Israel that “they beheld the place where the God of Israel had stood” [Exo_24:10.] and that there was “under his feet as it were a work of sapphire stone and a likeness of the firmament of heaven.” [Exo_24:10.] We might therefore be led to imagine that the Word and the Wisdom of God, who extends from end to end mightily and orders all things sweetly, [Wis_8:1.] stood in his own substance within the space of an earthly place. And thus the Word of God, through whom all things were made, [Joh_1:3.] is thought changeable so that now he draws himself together and now he expands. May God cleanse the hearts of his faithful from such thoughts! But, as we have often declared, all these visible and tangible signs were displayed through a creature that has been made subject, in order to signify the invisible and intelligible God, not only the Father but also the Son and the Holy Spirit, from whom are all things, through whom are all things, and in whom are all things. [Rom_11:36.] Since the creation of the world, the invisible attributes of God, his everlasting power also and divinity, are seen, being understood through the things that are made. [Rom_1:20.] The Trinity 2.15.25. [FC 45:81-82.]
Wesley’s Notes on NT :
They saw the God of Israel – That is, they had some glimpse of his glory, in light and fire, though they saw no manner of similitude. They saw the place where the God of Israel stood, so the seventy, something that came near a similitude, but was not; whatever they saw it was certainly something of which no image or picture could be made, and yet enough to satisfy them that God was with them of a truth. Nothing is described but that which was under his feet, for our conceptions of God are all below him. They saw not so much as God’s feet, but at the bottom of the brightness they saw (such as they never saw before or after, and as the foot – stool or pedestal of it) a most rich and splendid pavement, as it had been of sapphires, azure, or sky – coloured. The heavens themselves are the pavement of God’s palace, and his throne is above the firmament.
Foarte interesant , Wesley face referire la versiunea Septuagintei, desi preot anglican 🙂
