New International Commentary on the Old Testament
The Book of Numbers
by Timothy Ashley
The book of Numbers tells the story that has two main character: God and Israel. Yet Numbers can be complicated and confusing for students, exegetes, and pastors to unravel the importace of Numbers: exact obedience to God. Timothy Ashley removes much of the confusion by dividing the Hebrew text into five major sections and showing how each section contributes to the entire book's theological themes of obedience and disobedience. His detailed verse-by-verse comments are intended primarily to explain the text rather than to speculate on how the book came to be in its present form. The introduction includes an extended bibliography.
