The seventh principle of the Rambam's thirteen principles of faith affirms the unique, unprecedented, never to be equaled level and quality of Moshe Rabbeinu's prophecy. Rambam's presentation of this principle is especially interesting. Whereas he presents the other twelve principles rather sparsely (e.g. in principle two he merely affirms the oneness of Hashem, without explaining any of the profundities and implications), principle seven is presented in great detail. Rambam lists the four distinguishing features of Mosaic prophecy. The message is abundantly clear: Rambam felt it was of great importance that we be familiar with these four features.
This week's krias haTorah highlights two of the four unique features of Moshe Rabbeinu's prophetic experience. Thus it seems appropriate to review these differences in conjunction with the krias haTorah.
