Join Grant and Robin for an unrehearsed discussion of the Torah portion. (With apologies for a slight microphone malfunction on Grant’s mic.)
Why was Phinehas’ act of zeal honored by God to such a degree? And why do some translations render his act as one of “jealousy”? And why does God describe Himself as “jealous”? How is this final test of Israel in the wilderness a foreshadowing of end-time events? The book of Numbers began with a census, and we find another census in this Torah portion. What has Israel changed since that first census 40 years earlier? And what are the parallels between Zimri and Korach?
