Bible study 141 – Numbers 24

STEP OUTLINE FOR THE PROPOSED FILM “ADVENTURES OF BALAAM THE SEER
PART 3 OF 3
BY (blanked out)
Editor’s comments: Too short!

SCENE 1: MOUNT PEOR, MOAB
Balak suggests that God may want to curse the Israelites if they ask from this new location, since the Israelites are not visible from Mount Peor. They make the usual altars and sacrifices, and Balaam the usual speech, about how awesome God and the Israelites are. Balak is furious, and asks Balaam to go home. Balaam then makes another speech, about how Israel will conquer and destroy all the nations in the area. Both Balaam and Balak leave the scene.
Finally it is explained why Balak tries over and over again. However, the explanation is not convincing at all (in fact, it makes no sense). The speeches are important here, so take care to make them comprehensible, and not too long.

END OF PART 3
Obviously too short. But put the three parts together, and I think we may have something. Although seriously, take out the talking donkey entirely. Maybe we could instead work that into a spin-off?

Numbers 24:8
God who brings him out of Egypt,
is like the horns of a wild ox for him; he shall devour the nations that are his
foes
and break their bones.
He shall strike with his arrows.
