Hank shares on the context of the Book of Numbers is the Hebrews who were enslaved by the Egyptians for 400 years were finally free, in the wilderness and enroute to the land God promised to Abraham. Here are people who have directly experienced the sovereign power of God in their deliverance from Egyptian bondage yet they repeatedly failed to maintain their covenant relationship with God, and as a result, all but two of the exodus generation — Joshua and Caleb — forfeit their inheritance of the promise land and now lay buried in the sands of the Sinai Peninsula. Numbers is a book of wanderings. It derives its title from two Israelite censuses, one of the exodus generation at Sinai n chapter 1, and the other of those who grew up in the wilderness and conquered Canaan at the plains of Moab in chapter 26. Israel’s disobedience transformed an eleven-day journey into a forty-year saga (0:51)
