Continuing Rabbi Francis Nataf’s innovative analysis of the Bible’s five books, this volume focuses on some of the text’s most perplexing stories in the Book of Numbers. It weaves them into discussions about the individual and the community, religious leadership and its abuse, and about communication and disappointment. Taking a new look at Judaism’s most basic text, Rabbi Nataf reads the Bible in ways that make it more accessible and more exciting to study. The clarity of the insights in Redeeming Relevance in the Book of Numbers reveals new patterns in the biblical text.

Perusing this biblical book through a theopolitical prism, it may be seen that another unifying theme that courses through the diverse contents of this biblical work is that of molding the diverse tribes of the children of Israel into a functioning confederacy presided over by an increasingly strong central authority. For forty years, Moses wrestled with the problem of retaining the tribal structure of the children of Israel as a vehicle for the transmission of traditional teachings and values from the generation of the exodus to their descendants and, at the same time, attempting to restructure intertribal relationships within the confederacy by the nationalization and centralization of the evolving religion, focused on the Tabernacle and its rites that served as the adhesive that bound them to each other. What the narrative also illustrates is the challenge of exercising the effective central leadership essential to containing the centripetal social forces that tended to impede the transition from a tribal confederacy to a unified nation, a challenge that purportedly caused an eleven-day trip from Mount Sinai to the Promised Land to take thirty-eight years to complete.

One of the most varied books of the Bible, Numbers exhibits an intense interest in the rules and regulations governing the activities of the priests and Levites, while narrative accounts of Israel's journeyings in the wilderness are juxtaposed in a seemingly random fashion. Nevertheless, in this scholarly new commentary Eryl Davies clearly shows the overarching structure of Numbers by focusing on three dominant themes: the theology of the land, the significance of the role of priest, and the holiness and purity of the emerging nation of Israel. Alongside a detailed yet very readable exegesis of the text, Davies also discusses important recent trends in Pentateuchal criticism.

God knew that man would fall and that he would not be able to redeem himself. This would be something that only God could do. What man could do is choose to be redeemed by trusting and believing in the only one who could redeem him and restore to him his eternal inheritance. This book will help you understand some basic Christian theology and questions such as: * Making the right choices in salvation, servitude and life bring about blessings. * The Lord is one God, manifested in three ways through God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. * If one God is a Trinity, is man, who was created in the image of God, also a trinity? * What is the importance of the number "3" in our relationship with God and His redemption of man? * Is the Old Testament a foreshadowing of the redeeming grace of God in His Son the Lord Jesus Christ? * What really happens at the moment of salvation when a person is born again?
