Search The Scriptures —Study 4 — Numbers 6:22-7:89. Dedication of the Tabernacle

Study 4 From The Book of Numbers is: Numbers 6:22-7:89.

  1. What did it mean for Aaron and his sons to ‘put’ God’s name upon the people of Israel? How did the blessing effect this? See Dt. 28:9, 10: Dn. 9:18, 19; and cf. 1 Cor. 6:11; 2 Cor. 13:14.
  2. Notice how often the words ‘offering’ or ‘dedication offering’ are used in chapter 7. The solemnity is emphasized by repetition. In what way is 7:89 a fitting climax to this ‘build-up? What did it all mean to Israel? Do we ‘offer’ to God in this atmosphere of reverence? What similar climax may we expect when we thus approach God> Cf. Heb. 3:7; 4:16
Note. 6:26. ‘Peace’ (Heb. Shalom) does not mean simply ‘cessation of hostility’. It indicates ‘completeness’, ‘perfection’ or well-being’.
