9.04.2022 – ADULT Sunday School – Life & Times of Moses, “I Wanna Go Home!, Complaining is contagious (and is sin)” Numbers 11:1-35, Rick Bickel

Review / Skip-over: (8/28/2022) In Book of Numbers Chapter 5 & 6, we saw that God declared civil order for and blessing over His covenant people.

NUMBERS Chapter 5:

  • Verses 1-4: Dealing with physical impurities (Lev 13:12-13).
  • Verses 5-10: Restitution for wrongs to another…which is sin against God (Lev. 6:1-10.

NUMBERS Chapter 6:

  • Verses 1-21: The vow of the Nazirite. A person who believes he should spend a designated period of time in special devotion to God took this type vow. They would abstain from some things, not cut their hair, and separate themselves to the Lord. It is believed that Samuel, Samson, and perhaps John-the-Baptist were life-long Nazirites.
  • Verses 22-23 (see “Aaronic Blessing”)

Composition in the Hebrew of this Aaronic Blessing:

  • Verse#: #words #syllables #consonants
  • Verse 24: 3 12 15
  • Verse 25: 5 14 20
  • Verse 26: 7 16 25

There are 15 words total in the Hebrew…Take away the 3x times the word “Lord” appears and there are 12 words remaining. 12 Hebrew words for the 12 tribes of Israel. An artistically done poem…a God ordained word…
