Notes on Deuteronomy 14-20

The Israelites are a “peculiar people” (Deut. 14:2), which is why it is silly for Christians and Americans today to think that all the laws of the Old Testament apply to us. It is why anti-Christians always want to point to the Pentateuch in order to lecture us on our hypocrisy. They are fools to … Continue reading Notes on Deuteronomy 14-20

Notes on Deuteronomy 1-2

Deuteronomy is the last of the five books of the Jewish Pentateuch, also known as the Law of Moses. The first two chapters are a quick rundown of some of the events that occurred in the book of Numbers. It takes place near the end of the 40 year wandering in the wilderness, and the … Continue reading Notes on Deuteronomy 1-2

Notes on Numbers 31-32

The children of Israel went to war against the Midianites and achieved near total destruction. The battle was so one sided that not one Israelite soldier was killed (Num. 31:49). Though they were commanded to slaughter everyone, the Israelites kept the women and children alive, and were punished with a plague (Num. 31:16). What would … Continue reading Notes on Numbers 31-32

Notes on Numbers 26-30

Numbers 26 once again numbers the sons over the age of 20 for each tribe. Thousands have been killed due to their incessant complaining, so the need to tally the remaining Israelites was necessary. The largest decrease is from the tribe of Simeon, which dropped from 59,300 to 22,200. An issue of inheritance arose in … Continue reading Notes on Numbers 26-30

Notes on Numbers 23-25

Once Balaam had a direct run in with the Angel of the LORD (Jesus Christ), he turned from his lying ways (Numbers 22) and began to tell Balak exactly what God told him to. These passages given as instruction to an outside nation about Israel ring true today, 3500 years later. These concepts should be … Continue reading Notes on Numbers 23-25

Notes on Numbers 21-22

As they march toward Canaan, the Israelites begin defeating army after army. Since they can’t go through Edom (Num. 20:18), they go around (Num. 21:4). Once again, they murmur against God. This is the tenth time that they whined about their situation, this time focusing on the quality of the free food they have been … Continue reading Notes on Numbers 21-22

Notes on Numbers 11-13

One of the things that always astounds me is the frequency with which the children of Israel take God for granted. They walked across the dry land when the Red Sea parted for them. They literally see the presence of God as a massive cloud and pillar of fire that surrounds their tabernacle every day. … Continue reading Notes on Numbers 11-13

Notes on Numbers 5-6

CHAPTER 5 God, whose name is Jealous (Exodus 34:14), has some pretty strong laws against adultery. If a man becomes jealous of his wife (as God is jealous when we go astray), he should take her before the priest and make an offering. The priest is to take an “earthen vessel” and fill it with … Continue reading Notes on Numbers 5-6

Notes on Leviticus 24-25

A mixed-race boy (Semitic and Hamitic) from the tribe of Dan (Antichrist) cursed God and blasphemed in public. His punishment, according to Leviticus 24:14, was to be stoned to death. Mohammad, in his attempt to usurp the story of Moses for his own, made this idea a foundational doctrine for Islam. Therefore, even drawing an … Continue reading Notes on Leviticus 24-25

Notes on Leviticus 22-23

There are seven feasts that the Israelites are supposed to have for God. There are the Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, Feast of Firstfruits, Feast of Pentecost, Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Feast of Tabernacles. Each one bears special significance for the Israelites as well as Christians. Passover is a remembrance of when … Continue reading Notes on Leviticus 22-23
