Did God harden Pharaoh’s heart? Paul’s use of the potter-clay analogy to illustrate God’s involvement with Pharaoh has been greatly misinterpreted to paint the picture of a god who is not a God of freedom, but rather a puppet master who pre-determines who will be vessels of his love and who will be vessels of his wrath. The potter-clay analogy, however, comes from Jeremiah 18 and should leave exactly the opposite impression!
We also discussed Moses’ role as an intercessor at Mount Sinai and suggested how this might help us to understand Jesus’ role as an intercessor.
