Description

An important part of the book of Deuteronomy deals with the transition from Moses to Joshua as the leader of the Israelite community en route to the Promised Land. After the unfortunate incident at Meribah, Moses knew that he would not enter Canaan (Num 20:6-12). Rather than grumbling, he pleaded with the Lord to appoint a new leader over the community (Num 27:12-23). God selected Joshua, and Moses empowered him by sharing some of his authority with him and by commissioning him in the presence of the whole Israelite community. Deuteronomy 34:9 points out that “Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him. So the children of Israel heeded him.” This presentation seeks to draw some vital lessons on mentoring and leadership development from the life of Moses, one of the greatest spiritual leaders in the Bible.
