Day 42

Numbers 1-2

Chapter 1

numbers_bookI got an A in high school math, but that was almost 40 years ago, and I’ve always hated statistics. So I can’t quite wrap my mind around the possibility of this: “The Israelite population went from seventy (Exodus 1:5) to several million (over 600,000 adult males) in about 400 years.” (based on a comparison of Exodus 1:5 to Numbers 1:45-46) But it doesn’t sound reasonable…

Chapter 2

This is a total snooze, but skim through it anyway, and then you’ll understand why the book of Numbers is called “Numbers”.

This might help you visualize the arrangement of the tribes.
