SERMONS #52 – A Plurality of Numbers (6/4/23)

29:13 – Dave in Kentucky finally gets started on the Book of Numbers, and we soon find out why it’s called that. There’s a little more of the singular vs. plural stuff, too, left over from the previous episode. Discover why the Levites received a Selective Service exemption, how the Israelites conducted their census, and when the Levites and their livestock became the substitute firstborn. Also: the Quimbaya artifacts, pareidolia, and gaslighting. Finally, did the Ark of the Covenant’s wooden carrying poles remain in the metal rings of the Ark at all times? If so, why, and if not, why not?
