THE BOOK OF NUMBERS
Numbers begins the second part of Israel‘s journey—called the “Wilderness Years”
—a journey that will take forty years. In the silence of the desert, the Israelites heard the
Word and became the people of the Word. There is a long walk to true freedom and there is
no shortcut—it takes time and there are many challenges along the way that will cause them to yearn
for the predictability of Egypt. Many treasures are to be found in this remarkable book.
This is Israel’s journey – but it is also our journey!
