This Sunday’s readings offer some unusual insights into the nature of, and interaction between, power, authority, and responsibility.

In the first reading, Moses explains to the people of Israel why prophets exist. Prophets are intermediaries between God and the community. Prophets are people who will lead the community and at the same time they must be accountable to God.
