Why God Talks
Torah is full of dialogue. God talks to Avraham, Avraham talks to god, God talks to Moses, God talks to he Jewish people, etc
Why all the talking?
Couldn’t God just let us know what we need to know in one shot?
In the desert, it was common that when a Jew asked Moses a question he didn’t know how to answer, Moses would go ahead and ask God. This happens over and over.
Surely God can find more efficient ways to get his message across. Why no writing on the wall? Why couldn’t God just put the answer in Moses’s head?
What is clear is that God does not need to talk to us. He just loves it.
When we recognize that the Torah is a love story, things start making sense, and questions fall away.
The Torah is full of dialogue, which means God loves talking to us.
