Did Moses really see God's face?

In Exodus 33:20 The Word of God says But " he said, "you cannot see my face, for no-one may see me and live." But then earlier on in the chapter in verse 11 it says The LORD would speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks with his friend... So was Moses really talking with God?
John 1:18 No-one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father's side, has made him known. So if no one has ever seen God, was Moses talking to an angel sent by God to talk to Moses? :confused:
Many thanks in advance
God Bless

Mary,
Moses did not see God's face, the use of "face to face" was to put it into human terms. Joshua who also was there but he never left the tent but remained inside while Moses went out to talk with the LORD to be in His presence, but did not look into His face.

For God when he passed by Moses covered Moses' face so he would not die.
Ex 33:23 "Then I will take My hand away and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen."(NASB)

Hope this was helpful.

Peace be with you,
Your Brother in Christ,
John.
