Saint Aaron ~ A Good and Helpful Brother

Aaron and Moses Speak to the Israelites

Saint Moses was very uncertain about going to Egypt and leading the Hebrew people out of slavery.  Evidently he was not a great speaker … and reminded God about that problem.  But, God reminded him about his older brother, Aaron, who was an eloquent speaker.  This brother of Moses, Aaron, at the age of 83, dutifully assisted his brother in releasing the Israelites from their centuries of slavery.
