Leaders Led Astray
Moses’ brother, Aaron, had been Divinely appointed to assist with the deliverance of the Israelites from Egyptian bondage. Though he had witnessed the miraculous wonders of God as the people emerged from slavery, he allowed the multitude to persuade him to become complicit in committing idolatry. Paul the apostle declared at the First of Galatians that he would not be a servant of Christ if he were a pleaser of men. At the Twelfth of John, many of the religious leaders of the day believed on Jesus Christ but would not express their faith for fear that the Pharisees would put them out of the synagogue. They, and Aaron long before them, had become leaders led astray.
