Join Grant and Robin for an unrehearsed discussion of the Torah portion.
We haven’t seen Moses this angry since the spies’ evil report 40 years earlier. How was that earlier event similar to what takes place here in Numbers 32? And why was God so relentless and unmerciful to the Midianites? What is it about them that demanded such a violent and wrathful response? Even more, what lessons does Midian have to teach us today? We also discuss the symbolism of the number 40 in the Scriptures and what the 42 encampments (Numbers 33) have to teach us. Then we touch on the gracious significance of the cities of refuge scattered throughout the Promised Land.
