Notes on the book of Numbers
George Phillip and Son, 1884 - 201 Seiten
The Book of Numbers is an "in between" book in the Biblical story of the Israelites' Exodus from Egypt. While Book of Exodus kicks off the story with Moses' dramatic showdown with the Pharaoh and the reception of the Ten Commandments, and the Book of Joshua finishes the tale with the successful occupation of the Promised Land, the Book of Numbers depicts the Israelites in transition as they wander the desert preparing for their conquest of Canaan. Despite its position as the uncertain middle portion of a trilogy, the book nevertheless contains some memorable events: Moses striking the rock at Meribah to bring forth fresh water, the bronze snake Moses made to relieve those afflicted by snakebite, and Balaam's donkey opening its mouth to prophesy. "Notes on the Book of Numbers" offers a careful analysis of the text, detailed maps and timelines for the events mentioned in scripture, and copious notes on the sacrifices and events of the Jewish calendar.
