Does God Tell Moses to Lie in Exodus 3?

Episode 691 Show Notes

From the Show

What is being emphasized here is the cruelty and hard heartedness of Pharaoh in the face of even the smallest request. We see this tug of war between Pharaoh and Israel, where God is loosening the grip of Pharaoh upon his people. Until ultimately he brings them out of Egypt with a mighty hand and outstretched arm.
