This book provides a new reading of the biblical book of Numbers in a commentary form. Mainstream readings have tended to see the book as a haphazard junkyard of material that connects Genesis–Leviticus with Deuteronomy (and Joshua), composed at a late stage in the history of ancient Israel. By contrast, this book reads Numbers as part of a wider work of Genesis–Joshua, a carefully crafted programmatic settler colonial document for a new society in Canaanite highlands in the late second millennium BCE that seeks to replace pre-existing indigenous societies. In the context of the tremendous influence that the biblical documents have had on the world in the last 2,000–3,000 years, the book also offers pointers towards reading these texts today. This volume is a fascinating study of this text, and will be of interest not only to biblical scholars, but to anyone with an interest in the history of the ancient Levant, and colonisation and colonialism in the ancient world more broadly.

"Despite the importance of the Book of Numbers, its rich collection of stories is not easily assimilated, even by the most conscientious of readers. As such, it requires the help of an expert guide to thread one's way through this mixture of interesting episodes and anecdotes on the one hand, and the many lists, prescriptive rules, ritual regulations, and repeated admonitions on the other. Professor Levine shows us the way into this difficult and sometimes forbidding book of the Bible, and we can be confident of our guide, and secure in the knowledge that the one who led us into the thicket will lead us out again into a broad and fair land."--BOOK JACKET.

R. K. Harrison was one of the leading evangelical Old Testament scholars of the twentieth century. Well known for his Introduction to the Old Testament and his work as general editor of the New International Commentary on the Old Testament series, he also produced several valuable commentaries. In this volume, he applies his considerable skills to interpreting the book of Numbers, the fourth book of the Pentateuch. "The book of Numbers is of pivotal importance for all Old Testament study because it covers the formative period of Israel's communal and religious life," notes Harrison in the introduction. "During this period, Israel's religious life was shaped by the promulgation of many laws from God that would establish the nature of her worship and prepare her for a settled community life beyond the confines of the wilderness." Based on the Hebrew text, Harrison's insightful commentary provides a translation for each pericope, in-depth textual notes, explanations, and exposition. A concise introduction focuses on the place of Numbers in the Pentateuch and the wider canon, as well as its structure, compilation, authorship, and both textual and interpretive histories. Exposition sections interact with theological, archaeological, and historical scholarship. The primary theme of the commentary is that Numbers represents a covenant-renewal document whose historical narratives graphically describe the Israelites' experiences and difficulties as Yahweh's chosen people.

"In ancient time numbers were seen as mysterious and symbolic, a key to reality and the mind of God himself. Today they are associated with computers and the depersonalization that threatens our society." In his effort to bridge the great gulf between the book and our age, Wenham first explains the background of Numbers, discussing its structure, sources, date and authorship as well as its theology and Christian use. A passage-by-passage analysis follows, which draws useful insights on Old Testament ritual from modern social anthropology. - Publisher.

TITLE: This fourth book of the Pentateuch derives its name Numbers from the Septuagint version and was so designated by the census of the people in the wilderness of Sinai, chapters 1 to 4, and again thirty-eight years later in the plains of Moab, Chapter 26. WRITER: "Moses wrote his departures", 32.2. LINKS: This book is not separated from the others. Exodus describes the way out and the fundamental truth of redemption. Leviticus talks about access to God and details the principles of worship. Numbers recounts the crossing of the desert, with lessons for our conduct in this world. In Leviticus there are many priests, in Numbers the Levites and towards the end the people. ANALYSIS: W. G. Scroggie discerns two broad divisions: - The stay in Sinai - 1.1 to 10.10, where the people were organized and prepared for the trip. - The March to the Plains of Moab - 10.11 to 36.13. Upon reaching Kadesh, disbelief brings the journey to a halt. After wandering for years they started up again, but not without complaints. SPIRITUAL INSTRUCTION: Referring to various experiences of the Israelites in the wilderness, Paul writes: "These things happened to them as examples (or types) and are written to admonish us," 1 Corinthians 10.11. We must study the book. Just as Leviticus begins with the phrase "from the tabernacle," Numbers begins with "in the wilderness." "From the tabernacle," where believers worship the Lord on the first day of the week, we go out "into the wilderness" to serve the Lord. As priests, we worship in the sanctuary; As Levites, we work in the world, witnessing for Christ. In essence, Numbers records the many vicissitudes of life in the desert people, which illustrate the abundant trials that believers encounter in the world. It is not primarily a book of conflict with enemies without, as is the book of Joshua, but an account of enemies within, such as backbiting, disbelief, and insubordination in our pilgrimage in the world. God's grace does not fail, and our resources are found in Christ https: //amzn.to/2Xdtq2m
