And Yawheh spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend (Ex.33:11).
Is this a contradiction?
“Behold, I send an ANGEL before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and OBEY HIS VOICE, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for MY NAME IS IN HIM” (Ex.23:20-21).
It was YAHWEH revealing or MANIFESTING Himself THROUGH an ANGEL.
“the Angels do always behold the FACE of my Father which is in heaven” (Mt.18:10).
“God (“Elohim”) said, ‘Let us make man in OUR image and after OUR likeness’…” (Gen.1:26)
“… Neither can they die any more: for THEY ARE EQUAL UNTO THE ANGELS; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.” (Luke 20:35-36)
