The Bronze Serpent (Numbers 20-21)

In our last lesson we saw a turning moment in the book of Numbers. The death of Miriam opens the chapter as an ominous reminder about the falling of this generation in the wilderness for their rebellion. Then Moses and Aaron take glory to themselves when they strike the rock before the congregation of Israel to bring them water, rather than speaking to the rock and giving God the glory. The condemnation is that neither Moses or Aaron will enter the promised land because of their rebellion. Numbers 20 continues to describe more problems for Israel as they come to the end of the wilderness journey.
