    In all the sources I’ve seen, Aaron is older than Moses and their sister Miriam is older than both of them. What is your source for the view that Moses was the first-born? – BartholomewB Dec 30 '17 at 14:11

    Aaron, not Aron. This needs a reference showing where it is stated or implied that Moses was firstborn. @Marc, it is generally thought that they were biological brothers. – disciple Dec 31 '17 at 0:39

They were of similar age but Aaron must have been around 3 years older.

And Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron eighty-three, when they spoke to Pharao.

Exodus 7:7
