1.15.2023 – ADULT Sunday School – Life & Times of Moses, “The Inheritance – Submission/ Trust/ Obedience”, Numbers 27 & 36, Rick Bickel

REVIEWThe 3-question quiz last week revealed that our biggest threat might be accepting the wrong path over a period of time. It might just be that the water’s temperature is being turned up

  • Christians are often tripped up by things that are a threat, but they do not see them as a threat.
  • We sometimes accept in our midst as Christians thins that open the door to immorality and idolatry.
  • Some things cannot be cleansed and must be done away with.


The 3 big themes in Numbers are: Journey, Warfare, and Inheritance. Today as we bring our study to a close, we will focus on the last theme, INHERITANCE.
