Did Moses really speak to over a million people?

Question:

I am studying my Hebrew roots, and lately a lot of hidden treasure springs up as I study the scriptures. One thing however bugs me. I was watching a teaching and the teacher requested the people in the room to move forward so that they could hear him. My mind then jumped to Mount Sinai when Moses read the Law, to 600,000 men (and there were also woman and children there). How did Moses achieve that all these people could hear him? 

I need to wrap my mind around this. Hashem did amazing wonders in the desert, however how did everyone hear Moses? 

Thank you and Shalom

Dear Charlene,

We were quite tickled by your question. It is so important that we look at Bible passages that we have read a thousand time and still approach them with a desire to find new questions jumping out at us. This is exactly what you did!
