Gordon D. Fee and Douglas Stuart on Numbers

Gordon D. Fee and Douglas Stuart, How to Read the Bible Book by Book: A Guided Tour (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2002), 54.

‘The significant part of Israel’s story we find recorded in Numbers had a long history in Israel’s memory (Deut 1-4; Neh 9; Pss 78; 105; 106; 135; Acts 7), stressing God’s faithfulness to his people despite their many failures, and the story continues to be sung in the Christian church (“Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah”).’
