The next Bible lesson begins the study of the book of Numbers and was released earlier entitled Introduction to the Book of Numbers. This is the 4th book of the Pentateuch and merely two years have passed since the Exodus. The study topic is the census of 1490 B.C. and wilderness miracles.
This book commonly known as “Numbers” was entitled as such by translators but would have been more accurately translated from Hebrew as “in the wilderness”. God speaks directly to Moses and names the heads of each tribe by name as the representatives responsible for the numbering, or census.
One of the Bible verses mentioned references the clothing and shoes worn by the Israelis during the 40 years of wandering in the wilderness. How they managed to clothe more than 1 million people in that time is answered in the lesson including the meaning of the Hebrew word translated to “shoes”. The last line in the article is “Trust God and He will provide”.
