This week we will finish up the book of Leviticus and start the books of Numbers. Before going into the Promised Land the Israelites took stock of their military. The names and numbers may not be the most exciting thing to read in Scripture, but “it helps to remember that these were real people who were about to do something very bold and very important – take over the land God promised them.” The book also contains key rules and laws that the Israelites were to follow. On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups and the Sunday sermon. Please consider the questions below regarding the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups.
