Numbers 6

  1. How did the Nazirite’s separation to God find expression?
    What was the point of it all, since it was apparently not an act of service that could be offered to God as acceptable in and of itself apart from the regular offerings of the tabernacle?
    See 6:14-15; and cf. Lev. 1-7 for details.
    How far is there a similar challenge to consecration confronting the believer in Christ?
    Cf. Heb. 9:10-14; Rom. 12:1, 2
  2. What did it mean for Aaron and his sons to ‘put’ God’s name ‘on the Israelites’?
    How did the blessing effect this?
    See Deut. 28:9, 10; Dan. 9:18 19; and cf. 1 Cor. 6:11; 2 Cor. 13:14.

Note 6:2. A ‘Nazirite’ was a man who desired for a period to set himself apart for God in an unusual way.
The Hebrew root, nazir, expresses the idea of separation or consecration.
