The Torah takes great pains to emphasize Moshe's humanity in this week's Torah reading.

Yes, the great savior of Israel, the man who would speak with G-d face to face, was just that - a man, mortal and fallible like the rest of us.

Everything is going to change, G-d says, even your perception of My name.

And the Redemption is about to begin.
