dc.description.abstract Through a contextual reading of the exodus narrative, this study explores various struggles that Moses faced as he led the Hebrew slaves out of Egypt. During the journey the people complained, not only because of the hardship in the wilderness, but, at a time, they rebelled against Moses' leadership and challenged the institutions he put in place. Moses responded to these rebellions, either by earnest intercession in favor of the community or by letting God's wrath suppress violently the contention. The narrative raises a number of issues related to the exercise of leadership, especially leadership contest that many leaders today still wrestle with.
