A Dangerous God (Numbers 3:1–51)

Numbers Exposition

God’s nearness to his people is something we should never take for granted. God is holy; we are not. It by his mercy that we can draw near at all. But this nearness can be dangerous, for God is dangerous. In Numbers we learn to be reverent in our relationship with God. Numbers reveals that the presence of God can be dangerous.

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.
