Numbers 25

  1. Chapter 25. Why was God’s anger so fierce against the sins of his people?
    Cf. 1 Cor. 10:6-12. In this situation what two complementary concerns stirred Phinehas to action?
    Who likewise was moved to action on our account by similar concerns?
    Note. 25:1-5. Num. 31:16 and Rev. 2:14 reveal that these developments were due to Balaam’s activities. The Israelites were seduced into idolatry and immorality.
