Challenge to Leadership

“During the next 40 years the Israelites will become bitter, quarrelsome, and openly rebellious.  After Korah leads 250 others in what amounts to a mutiny, are miraculously destroyed for their rebellion, thousands of other Israelites who stand in sympathy with them are also stricken by plague and die.  This was an assault against God’s chosen priesthood.

God declares that the priests and the Levites will have no inheritance in the promised land, but will rather be supported through the practice of tithing.”

Read Numbers 16, 17:1-13 and 18
