Study 5 From The Book of Numbers is: Numbers 8:1– 9:14.
- Chapter 8 is a re-assertion of the ‘separatedness’ of the Levites. How was this made clear to Israel? What is a wave offering? Cf. Lv. 10:15; 23:20; a probable meaning is “contribution”. What was the relationship of the Levites to God, priests and people respectively?
- 9:1-14. How is the importance of the Passover shown here? Cf. Ex. 12:24-27. What are we to learn from this?
- What do we see here of Moses’ way of exercising leadership? How did the deal with practical problems when individuals brought them to him?
