Agape Bible Study - The Pentateuch Part 4
The Book of Numbers

The Book of Numbers is the fourth of five parts which comprise what Scripture calls "The Book of Moses.",
In the Book of Numbers, the Israelites experienced the failure of the aborted conquest of Canaan and the years of trial when God instructed and disciplined His children in the wilderness wandering. The book concludes in the fortieth year after leaving Egypt, at the Israelite encampment on the Plains of Moab on the east side of the Jordan River. During those years of wandering, the old generation died and a new generation grew to maturity, a generation that had not known slavery and the worship of false gods in Egypt. Raised in obedience to the divine Law of the Sinai Covenant, the vigorous new generation of the children of Israel was fully prepared to become Yahwehs holy warriors and the conquerors of the Promised Land. All references for the course are found in the Course Bibliography.
