Aaron was high priest but God used Moses to make him a priest

Exodus Bible Background

Old Testament: Exo 40.12–15

To read the Bible in a year, read Exodus 39–40 on February 6, In the year of our Lord Christ 2020

By Don Ruhl

The position that Aaron held as the high priest of Israel was a great honor. Think of what he did; he was the go-between for Israel and God! Now read this:

“Then you shall bring Aaron and his sons to the door of the tabernacle of meeting and wash them with water. You shall put the holy garments on Aaron, and anoint him and consecrate him, that he may minister to Me as priest. And you shall bring his sons and clothe them with tunics. You shall anoint them, as you anointed their father, that they may minister to Me as priests; for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.”

– Exodus 40.12–15

As exalted a position as Aaron served in, look at his younger brother making him the high priest. Just who was this Moses?


  • How old was Moses when he led Israel out of Egypt and how old was he when he died after leading Israel through the wilderness?
  • How old are you?
  • What can you do for the Lord?
