David Limbaugh. The Emmaus Code: How Jesus Reveals Himself Through the Scriptures. Washington D.C: Regnery Publishing, November 9th, 2015. 256 pp.
The subject of this book is on the Messianic prophecies found in the Jewish Scriptures and how it was fulfilled by Jesus Christ. This book truly surprised me. The author is a conservative political commentator, author and the younger brother of talk radio host Rush Limbaugh. Maybe it is because I became somewhat skeptical of talk show hosts writing books on Jesus after my experience of reading Bill O’reilly’ book on “Killing Jesus” (it left a bitter taste in my mouth with how poor the theology was) but when I first picked this book up my expectation was really low. Again this book surprised me in the sense that it was really well researched and written. At first I didn’t know what to make of the book’s introduction in which David Limbaugh said he’s has been studying the Bible and its prediction of Jesus for over twenty years. I wasn’t sure if I could believe him; but after finishing the book I do. This book was really well done and of an amazing caliber considering that the author is a “layman.” He write in a way that is informative and winsome.
Today’s post will tackle the question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: “Was Moses a good speaker?”
Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:
Moses was educated in all the learning of the Egyptians, and he was a man of power in words and deeds. Acts 7:22
Moses was not an eloquent speaker. He was “slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.”
Then Moses said to the Lord, “Please, Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither recently nor in time past, nor since You have spoken to Your servant; for I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.” Exodus 4:10
Not even the Isrealites would listen to him. He had “uncircumcised lips.”
But Moses spoke before the Lord, saying, “Behold, the sons of Israel have not listened to me; how then will Pharaoh listen to me, for I am unskilled in speech?” Exodus 6:12
But Moses said before the Lord, “Behold, I am unskilled in speech; how then will Pharaoh listen to me?” Exodus 6:30
So God made Aaron his spokesman instead of Moses.
Then the anger of the Lord burned against Moses, and He said, “Is there not your brother Aaron the Levite? I know that he speaks fluently. And moreover, behold, he is coming out to meet you; when he sees you, he will be glad in his heart. 15 You are to speak to him and put the words in his mouth; and I, even I, will be with your mouth and his mouth, and I will teach you what you are to do. 16 Moreover, he shall speak for you to the people; and he will be as a mouth for you and you will be as God to him. Exodus 4:14-16
Let’s take a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:

Point: Sometimes what is found in the skeptics’ list of Bible contradictions are not contradictions but are what appears to be contradictions because the skeptic hasn’t account for the Bible’s use of figure of speech. Of course to bring this point up the skeptics might respond by saying this is a cop-out. But are there are figures of speech we use that appear to be contradictory on the surface level but really they are not?
