Speaking Christ Out of Every Corner of Scripture

    What are we to make of this long section of feasts, festivals, sacrifices, and vows? Why did God want Israel to orient themselves around a calendar of feasts and sacrifices?

    What is the story of Balaam's donkey really about? God's plan has always been to bless his people, and he does that here through a pagan sorcerer. How does this point us to Jesus? Seth and David talk about how this is one of their favorite parts of the Torah and how it is all about Jesus in this special (live from Kansas City) episode of the podcast.

    David recently preached a sermon on Exodus 32-34 which captures the heart of why we want to see Jesus in all of Scripture. We hope you enjoy this short departure from our normal format and that you are encouraged to cleft open your Bible and see the glory of God in the face of Jesus.

    The center of Israel finally falls away. Moses and Aaron disobey. What happens when there is no one left to intercede? What does it look like when the young generation takes over for the old?

  • Numbers 16-19: The Priest's Disbelief

    The disbelief of Israel comes to the priesthood. The people who are supposed to keep God's wrath away from the congregation, earn the wrath of God themselves. How do we know who can represent us before God? How do people of death stand with a God of life?

  • Numbers 13-15: The Spy's Disbelief

    Israel has arrived at the border of the Promised Land, but they refuse to enter it because of their disbelief. What are the consequences for not taking God at his word? Does God change his mind when Moses intercedes? Why are there seemingly random laws given after disobedience?

  • Numbers 10-12: Power Struggle

    Israel finally leaves Sinai and immediately starts to sin. The main concern and the main solution both revolve around leadership. What kind of leader did Israel need? Was Moses that leader? What is up with all the Spirit-filled, spontaneous prophecy in this passage? David and Seth discuss all this and more.

  • Numbers 7-9: Flashback to Exodus

    Before Israel leaves Sinai we see a flashback to the book of Exodus. Sacrifices are made, the Levites are consecrated, and the Passover is celebrated. Why this flashback? Why repeat the Exodus story here? How does all of this point us to Jesus?

  • Numbers 4-6: God's Moving Company

    July 11th, 2019  |  1 hr 6 mins

    Before they leave for Canaan, God wants to emphasize his presence with them and their need for purity. God is intimately involved in how they travel, how justice is carried out, and how vows are taken and kept. And, of course, all of it is about Jesus.

  • Numbers 1-3: The Census

    While Numbers isn't about numbers, it does start with a lot of numbers. So what is the significance of the long census that opens this book? How does it fit into the larger story of the Torah? How do we resolve some of the historical problems the numbers bring up? How does all of this point us to Jesus?

    Numbers is not about numbers. It is about Israel's journey to the promised land and their time of discipline in the wilderness. In this introductory episode, David and Seth lay overall story of the book to help us get over the actual numbers in the book and get into the whole point of its grand story.
