In accordance with the presence of the third day motif, the reader expects more to follow.

It is instructive as well that God appeared to the children of Israel on Mount Sinai not only in the third month after their departure from Egypt Exod Something distinctive, even unique, was to occur on the third day and that in turn pointed to important things to follow. In keeping with this were the later regulations concerning purifications by water on the third day as well as the seven days after contamination by touching a dead body Num The idea of healing thus is attached to the motif of the third day here. Once again not only is the purity of the day emphasized, but the day is one of healing and spiritual activity.

It is not surprising, then, that when the prophet Hosea urges the sinning people of the Northern Kingdom to return to the Lord so as to experience His forgiveness, and their healing and restoration, that he employs the motif of the third day: Come, let us return to the LORD. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; He has injured us but he will bind up our wounds. After two days he will revive us; On the third day he will restore us, that we may live in his presence Hos 6: They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles, who will mock him and spit on him, flog him and kill him.

He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you while he was still with you in Galilee: Paul boldly proclaimed to the Corinthian Christians:. For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: The motif of the third day therefore reaches its climax in the fact of the resurrection on the third day.

The Book of Numbers

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Brown has written a great little commentary on Numbers, the fourth book of the Pentateuch. The author combines exegetical insight with practical challenges and applications. His exposition is lighter on textual exegesis and heavier on the theological implications of the text, but this is a commentary on The Message of Numbers.

In general Brown's work is a welcome addition to commentaries on this lesser known book of the Hebrew Bible.

Unfortunately, less emphasis is given to rhetorical features and genre. I would recommend this book for any early learner of this book or one who wants a refreshing re-read of the insightful book of Numbers.
