Search The Scriptures —Study 16 — Numbers 22. The story of Balaam

Study 16 From The Book of Numbers is: Numbers 22. The story of Balaamsearch the srciptures

This is a difficult story.  Before tackling it, it will probably be helpful to read 2 Pet. 2:15, 16; Jude 11; Nu. 31:16 and Rev. 2:14, which give a clue as to Balaam’s true character and motives.

  1. Balaam’s influence and relationship to God are interesting. Think about them.  Consider also Moab’s fear in the face of Israel’s advance. What does this show concerning the ways in which God works?
  2. What was the ‘chink’ in Balaam’s armour? Why did his ‘guidance’ seems all confused after that? Contrast verse 12 with verse 20, 22, 32, 35. What ought we to learn from his failure? Do you think, 10 Rom. 14:22b, 23 and 1 Tim. 6:9, 10 give us a similar warning?
