With God in the Wilderness

“Snakebit”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Here we see the some of the Levites coming to Moses and basically saying, ‘We want to be priests. We’re Levites, but we want to be priests.’ And they challenge Moses’ and Aaron's leadership, and they defame them. You be on the lookout for how they do this, both those things — they challenge...

“Spies in the Land”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

The spies are in the land and they discover giants, and it is dismaying to them. John Bunyan leads us to sing about that in that hymn, even as Moses leads us to lament the way the children of Israel responded to this particular challenge.

This is one of those pivotal passages...
