God promised to be with Israel in the wilderness. In this commentary, John Currid shows how the book of Numbers demonstrates God's faithfulness in fulfilling His promises, despite their murmuring and rebellion. Now, in Christ, God promises to be with His people, guiding and leading them to the true promised land.
The place of the book of Numbers in the literary pattern is clear. First of all, it concludes Israel's stay at Sinai, and it prepares the people for the march to the land of promise (1:1-10:10). Secondly, the book records the actual journey from Sinai to the plains of Moab, and it ends with Israel prepared to launch a campaign into the land of promise.
