Bible study 143 – Numbers 27Posted: February 24, 2017
Some women complain that their family shouldn’t be without inheritance just because their father died without male heirs, and God complies.
It turns out that God was angry at Moses over the water-from-a-stone-affair all along, and that he must die for this just like Aaron (I thought Moses had to die because of the whole affair with the lying spies, but I guess that didn’t really make sense in the first place). But first he must transfer his prophetic authority over to Joshua (the guy who, together with Caleb, supported God when the spies lied about Canaan being filled with giants).
“Let the Lord, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint someone over the congregation (…) so that the congregation of the Lord may not be like sheep without a shepherd.”
