Numbers, Overview

Godsway 66, Book 4 - Numbers

Numbers is the fourth book of the Torah.  It describes some of the harder times while the Hebrews were wandering in the wilderness, especially as some of them seriously considered returning to Egypt -- even if it meant becoming slaves again.

Despite this, God remains faithful to the chosen people and sustains them throughout, guiding them, protecting them, and providing food and water for them.  God also sustains the prophet Moses, who leads the contentious people through the wilderness and prepares for their entry into the Promised Land.
