Trouble in Numbers: Showdown – Num. 15-16

10/8/17 Bible Class

The narrative of the book of Numbers seems like it is one misstep after another.  We’ve seen a number of Israel’s shortcomings so far, and today we will look at Korah’s Rebellion.  May we always endeavor to learn from what has been written in the past.

Trouble in Numbers: God’s Final Answer


In Number 14, Israel was afraid because of the report they heard about the mighty people that were in the Promised Land.  Though God had been with them all the way, they failed to believe, and complained against God and against his faithful servants.  God was going to punish Israel immediately, but Moses interceded on their behalf, and God decreed that the people would remain in the wilderness for 40 years.
