Pearcey Report

Saturday, July 5, 2008



Why did Moses, subsequent to his burning bush experience, his apparent years of experience as a shepherd in the wilderness of Sinai, and under the tutelage of Jethro, subsequently ask Jethro to guide them in their Sinai sojourn?

Surely he had learned certain things about Sinai as a shepherd.

In his 40 years of service under Jethro he had learned something, hadn’t he!?

Still; Moses asked Jethro to accompany them!

Certainly, this speaks to Moses’ leadership confidence at this juncture.

It also speaks to Jethro’s grasp of God’s providence.

Not only is God developing Moses during this experience: He is developing US (1 Cor. 10:1-2 & Romans 15:4).

At the same time, what does this suggest in terms of God’s involvement with people outside the sphere of Israel and the nations immediately surrounding her?

Jethro and Balaam provide fruitful ground for introspection as to God’s involvement with the mass of humanity out side the boundaries of Israel/Egypt.
