Welcome to the Torah Portion B’midbar. In this post, we will cover the weekly Torah portion and weekly Haftarah portion from a cultural perspective. There is also an Echoes Through Scripture teaching which takes a theme from the Torah portion and connects it throughout the rest of the Hebrew Bible and into the Apostolic Scriptures.
In the wilderness of Sinai, on the first day of the second month in the second year from the Exodus from the land of Egypt, YHWH spoke to Moses in the Tent of Meeting saying, “Do a head count of all the community of the children of Israel by their families and their ancestral house, with a total of every male one by one. You and Aaron are to muster by their divisions every son from 20 years and upward available to serve in the army of Israel. One man from each tribe, each head of his father’s household, is to assist you.
