When we look at how God established the priests of Israel, it’s helpful to remember that this would have been new and unusual. The Israelites had come out of the culture of Egypt, and while some elements of true worship of God may have mirrored practices they had seen and participated in, their covenant with God required change and deep allegiance. It was a
serious business, as they learned from the deaths of Nadab and Abihu. The people needed to learn the ways of God’s Tabernacle. The book of Numbers as a whole, also counts the Israelites at the beginning and end of their journey to the promised land. It keeps track of Israel’s very real journey, and records some highlights along the way: Like the rebellion of Korah, and a run in with a questionable prophet and his talking donkey.
