2020 Vision for 2021 (Numbers 1:1–3)

Numbers Exposition

2020 was a year of numbers—significant numbers. Numbers are significant. Often, numbers represent people and therefore matter. They matter to God and should matter to us. Perhaps no other book of the Bible makes this point more clearly than one of the most neglected books: the book of Numbers. Here, we learn, among other truths, that the number of God’s people is important and yet people are more than a number. That’s always an important truth to keep in mind.

This text brings to a close the tragic account of Israel’s sin of unbelief as they stood on the threshold of God’s Promised Land. Just when we think that things could not get any worse, their belief becomes blatantly exponential—seemingly boundless. In this account we learn that not only will Israel not believe God when he promises blessings; neither will they believe him when he promises them judgement. It is a text from which we do well to learn.
