Moses and the Burning Bush

Moses and the Burning Bush

Dedication: October 13, 1901
Donor: Jennie Dayton
Artist: Frederick Wilson for Louis Comfort Tiffany

Upper Scene (Exodus 3:2): A stunned and frightened Moses hears God speak to him from a burning bush. His comfortable world is about to be challenged by a new calling, a greater purpose. Like Moses, we experience turning points in life when God calls us to something other than what we expected.

Lower Scene (Exodus 17:6): Moses strikes a rock for water to quench the thirst of his people whose faith in God’s providence
has faltered—a message that even in helpless, wilderness times God brings new life out of a seemingly dry and unyielding existence.
