High Priest Aaron

Dionisy's frescoes. High Priest Aaron

Son of Amram and Jochebed, elder brother of Moses and his assistant in Exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt to Canaan (Palestine). He is the first high priest who confirmed his right to conduct religious rites by the fact that his rod was the only one out of 12 rods of the 12 tribes of Israel to blossom in the Arc of the Covenant.
