Jethro of Midian

We are introduced to Jethro as a part of the narrative of Moses in Exodus 2. After killing an abusive Egyptian, Moses escaped into Midian. There he intervened in a water access dispute on behalf of seven sisters. Their father was Jethro (or Reuel—some dispute here whether Jethro and Reuel are the same or if Reuel was Jethro’s father. The name Reuel means “friend of…
