Joshua Named as Successor

“Aware that his death is imminent, Moses is quite naturally concerned about the future leadership of Israel and asks for God’s guidance in the selection of his replacement.  It must be gratifying for Moses to learn that God has chosen Joshua, who has been Moses’ faithful protégé for over 40 years.”

Read Numbers 27:15-23

Two-and-a-Half Tribes East of Jordan

“Moses is approached by the men of Gad and Reuben, who have decided that they prefer to settle east of the Jordan River.  Moses is at first skeptical, thinking that perhaps the men are making the request in order to avoid fighting for Canaan.  When assured that the men will help conquer the promised land, Moses agrees to their request.”

Numbers 32 and Deuteronomy 4:41-43

Preparations for Conquest and Settlement

“God warns the Israelites in advance that when they enter Canaan they must drive out all of its inhabitants and completely destroy the idolatry rampant in the land.  (Needless to say in light of their past experience, the Israelites will not wholly comply with God’s directive and will therefore fall repeatedly into religious apostasy.)

The land which God has for centuries promised to give to his people is the land of Canaan, the borders of which God carefully delineates.”

Numbers 33:50-56, Deuteronomy 25:17-19, Numbers 34 and Numbers 35:1-8

From Kadesh to Moab

“The account of the Israelites wandering in the wilderness as recorded in the book of Numbers skips over virtually all of the 40 years except for the foregoing account of the people’s rebellion and the final year to come.  Miriam will die, and her brothers, Moses and Aaron, will so displease God that they too will be denied entrance into the promised land.  Apparently their sin involves not simply failure to follow God’s specific directions, but manifestations of pride and self-importance which minimize God’s power.

As Israel begins their march to Canaan, the Edomites refuse a request for safe passage through their territory.  This is the first of many conflicts which will fulfill the prophecy of antagonism between the descendants of Jacob (Israel) and Esau (Edom).”

Read Numbers chapters 20 and 21

Moses’ Journal of Israel’s Trek

“The book of Numbers gives a retrospective overview of the places where Israel has camped during the previous 40 years.  At God’s direction, Moses has been keeping a detailed journal of the exodus from Egypt. The following passages come from that journal.”
