Biblical Presbyterian Eldership

After the establishment of all these Christ-centred Presbuteeria — both smaller and broader — Moses continued to communicate the Word of God to the Elders.   At Mt. Sinai, a special delegation — consisting of Moses and Aaron and of seventy of the Elders or "Nobles" of Israel — drew near to God in order to worship Him.  Then and thereafter, the Elders continued to adjudicate and to arbitrate and to reconcile grievances between various squabbling members of God's people.   However, they also exercised their solidarity with (and represented God's people before) the Lord.   Indeed, they even helped bring the people's offerings to Jehovah.18
