#20. Holy War


Bileam und der Engel, Gustav Jäger, 1836

The final portion of the Book of Numbers makes for a rough journey. Balak, the King of Moab, asks Balaam to curse Israel, only for Balaam to have a peculiar interaction with a speaking donkey. The Israelites and Midianites spend some intimate time together, resulting in slaughter. The daughters of Zelophehad request a landholding from Moses and the assembly, granting property rights to women — but with hefty restrictions. Join the Third Hour Podcast as we wrestle in the wilderness.


Read along in Numbers 22-36!
