Day 46

Numbers 8-10

Chapter 8

God reveals that he plays favorites. The Levites are extra-special, and god has chosen them to be his priests. So… just thinking ahead – wouldn’t it have made sense then, for Jesus to be descended from the Levites? Because he wasn’t.

Chapter 9

Here’s an absurd story about the Israelites following the fiery cloud that settled over the tabernacle. But is it any more absurd than the story of the wise men following the star that settled over Bethlehem? (or could that story be modeled after this one?)

numbers 10Chapter 10

This is borrrrrring. First we get rules for blowing ceremonial trumpets, then a detailed description of how the people lined up to march. Yahweh gets really preoccupied with minutiae.
