On the other side of the Red Sea, a people who have lived in bondage under a totalitarian regime, knowing nothing other than a Pharaoh, are now facing major questions of LEADERSHIP in their new community which must become a nation of its own. And some want the unthinkable - to have a new Pharaoh, either to return to Egypt...or (years later) to conform to the empire mindset of the surrounding nations and have their own king. 2 lessons about human tendencies in relation to leadership we learn from the history of Israel...and the history of humanity: 1) We tend to rebel against our leaders, no matter genuine their use of the position...2) Leaders tend to abuse the "authority" of their position... We explore why these issues are not only important to histories of nations and governments...but have huge implications for our understanding of church leadership - why God wants it be SHARED among leaders who understand their roles merely as STEWARDS of God's Will. One-man shows corrupt quickly.
