1 Biblical Relationships: Moses & Joshua- mentoring a leader Biblical Relationships: Moses & Joshua- mentoring a leader August 5, 2012 Table talk – If you had the skill (and the body type) for any one Olympic event, what would that be and why Tom Herrmann

2 Group discussions See Handout What are the shared experiences of Moses & Joshua? How do you think Joshua felt?

3 God’s Power – God’s Word Ex 17: The Amalekites came and attacked the Israelites at Rephidim. 9 Moses said to Joshua, "Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands." 8 The Amalekites came and attacked the Israelites at Rephidim. 9 Moses said to Joshua, "Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands." 10 So Joshua fought the Amalekites as Moses had ordered, and Moses, Aaron and Hur went to the top of the hill. 11 As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. 12 When Moses' hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up — one on one side, one on the other — so that his hands remained steady till sunset. 13 So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword. 14 Then the Lord said to Moses, "Write this on a scroll as something to be remembered and make sure that Joshua hears it, because I will completely blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven."

4 God’s Presence – God’s Word Ex 24: The Lord said to Moses, "Come up to me on the mountain and stay here, and I will give you the tablets of stone, with the law and commands I have written for their instruction." 12 The Lord said to Moses, "Come up to me on the mountain and stay here, and I will give you the tablets of stone, with the law and commands I have written for their instruction." 13 Then Moses set out with Joshua his aide, and Moses went up on the mountain of God. 14 He said to the elders, "Wait here for us until we come back to you. Aaron and Hur are with you, and anyone involved in a dispute can go to them." 15 When Moses went up on the mountain, the cloud covered it, 16 and the glory of the Lord settled on Mount Sinai. For six days the cloud covered the mountain, and on the seventh day the Lord called to Moses from within the cloud. 17 To the Israelites the glory of the Lord looked like a consuming fire on top of the mountain. 18 Then Moses entered the cloud as he went on up the mountain. And he stayed on the mountain forty days and forty nights.

5 It is God who saves (and God who deserves glory) Num 13:16 These are the names of the men Moses sent to explore the land. (Moses gave Hoshea son of Nun the name Joshua.) Num 13:16 These are the names of the men Moses sent to explore the land. (Moses gave Hoshea son of Nun the name Joshua.)

6 Moses & Joshua 1. Experienced the Presence of God 2. Knew the Propositional Truth (Word of God) 3. Understood that Power 3. Understood that Power comes from God and God deserves Praise & Glory Knew the Poverty of sin and witnessed God’s judgment (Punishment) for disobedience

7 A parting reflection Joshua 24:31 Israel served the LORD throughout the lifetime of Joshua and of the elders who outlived him and who had experienced everything the LORD had done for Israel. Joshua 24:31 Israel served the LORD throughout the lifetime of Joshua and of the elders who outlived him and who had experienced everything the LORD had done for Israel. As Moses mentored Joshua, it would appear Joshua mentored the elders who outlived him and they did “Choose this day” whom they would serve! As Moses mentored Joshua, it would appear Joshua mentored the elders who outlived him and they did “Choose this day” whom they would serve! God’s plans call for participation from all in his church, and we each need to consider whom we might encourage as mentors and whom we might learn from as mentees God’s plans call for participation from all in his church, and we each need to consider whom we might encourage as mentors and whom we might learn from as mentees
