Old Testament Lesson 16: “I Cannot Go Beyond the Word of the Lord”

Numbers 22; 31 – Balak, king of Moab, needs to defeat Israel, but how? He elects to persuade Balaam, a prophet, to turn God on Israel. Yup. Balaam is tempted by the riches offered and clearly wants to have his cake and eat it too. God is angry with Balaam over his waffling and counsel to Balak. Also, Balaam’s donkey talks.

Old Testament Lesson 14: “Ye Shall Be a Peculiar Treasure unto Me”

Exodus 15-19; 32-34 – The Israelites murmur. How do we murmur? The Lord provides for them, regardless. What does manna symbolize? How do the Israelites literally sustain Moses while fighting the Amalekites? How can we sustain our leaders? What did Jethro teach Moses about delegation? Why does the Lord give Israel the Law of Moses instead of a higher law? Danielle Openshaw joins us.
