“Vanishing Act”

Exodus 24: 14: “But to the elders he said, ‘Wait here for us until we return to you. And behold, Aaron and Hur are with you; whoever has a legal matter, let him approach them.’” Hur gets off to a good start in Exodus. Along with Aaron, he holds up the hands of Moses to help the Israelites defeat the Amalekites. Here, after joining Aaron and seventy-two others in a most exclusive dinner party, they are delegated by Moses to judge the people in his absence. And after that – nothing. Not a word. Like Ananias of Damascus fame, he is given a major role by God, performs it well, then disappears from the scene. It doesn’t mean he fell from grace, it just means he finished his job.
