Numbers Chapter 13

God orders Moses to send men to spy out Canaan because God is going to give this land, which is well established with villages and families, to the Israelites because…apparently he promised it to them. So we get a long list of names who were the sons of other names from the tribes of still … Continue reading Numbers Chapter 13

Numbers Chapter 12

Here we come to another point in the Pentateuch where it is likely obvious that it was not written by Moses. 3Now the man Moses was very humble, more so than anyone else on the face of the earth. Bibles, Harper . NRSV Bible with the Apocrypha (p. 307). Zondervan. Kindle Edition. Truly the writing … Continue reading Numbers Chapter 12

Numbers Chapter 11

The Israelites are grousing because they don’t have any real food to eat, just the manna from heaven. They miss meat, fish, and vegetables, which I would too.

Ancient Aliens

Book Burni…errr…Banning

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Saturday Sermon and my regular posts have slowed down a bit. That’s due to my own laziness, I guess. I am also reading an interesting book about the cultural shift that lead to the Satanic Panic of the 1980s. I will be writing or podcasting about that … Continue reading Book Burni…errr…Banning

Numbers Chapters 1 through 5

Chapters 1 through 4 It turns out that the name of this book is pretty accurate. It starts off with God asking Moses and Aaron to take a census of the entire congregation of Israelites…but only if they’re male…and over twenty years old…and able to go to war. This isn’t a census, it’s a draft. … Continue reading Numbers Chapters 1 through 5
