The Exodus and The Wilderness

The Book of Exodus and the Book of Numbers are like mirror images of each other. Many events recorded in the Book of Exodus happened again in the Book of Numbers. It’s interesting that while the English Bible titles the fourth book as Numbers, the Hebrew title for the same book translates as ‘In the Wilderness’. One relates the exit of the Hebrew people from slavery, while the other tells us about their time in the wilderness. While many events are mirrored in both books, their implications are quite different. Undercovering these differences will give us insights into what God desires and expects from each of us.
