Numbers

Details, Please (Part 1)

Numbers begins with a census – hence the book’s name.  Fourteen months after the Israelites escape Egypt, they number 603,550 men, not including the Levites.  This mass of people, the newly formed nation of Israel, begins a march of approximately two hundred miles to the “promised land” of Canaan – a journey that will take decades to complete.
