Its easy to google a list of the Kings of Judea and Israel. You will see from these they don't list Moses as either a King or a Prophet.
I have read the Tanakh enough times to know that Moses wasnt a king of either Israel or Judea.
But i guess you missed the philosophical point i was trying to make. A king is an authoritarian. Moses, was and continues to be the ultimate authority
Although he never held any official title, he was the King/President or whatever title you would prefer to give him. He was the ultimate prophet,
speaking to G-d face to face.
Had you have noticed the top of my post you would have seen I was replying to 4Winds not your good self.
I did not miss your philosophical point but, I am not going to split hairs with you over the words King, President G-d etc because these names have
come down through generations and cultures. There is so much' no proof', just tradition on much of what is claimed and perhaps one should not
get too snotty with Ezra for the way he told it.
We all know the story about Moses and his relationship with G-d but did G-d refer to Moses as either a King or a Prophet, I can't remember it, his
role was unique (possibly the King's Lieutenant) . G-d sounds more like a Pharoah to me but that's just MHO.
