BIBLE DICTIONARY
Jethro
Also called Jether and Reuel, a prince and priest of Midian who gave Moses a home after his flight from Egypt, and afterwards became his father-in-law (Ex. 3: 1; Ex. 4: 18; Ex. 18: 1-12). It was from Jethro that Moses received the Melchizedek Priesthood (D&C 84: 6-7). He also gave Moses some practical advice about administrative delegation of responsibility (Ex. 18: 13-27).
