Product Description

The book of Numbers tells the story that has two main character: God and Israel. Yet Numbers can be complicated and confusing for students, exegetes, and pastors to unravel the importace of Numbers: exact obedience to God. Timothy Ashley removes much of the confusion by dividing the Hebrew text into five major sections and showing how each section contributes to the entire book's theological themes of obedience and disobedience. His detailed verse-by-verse comments are intended primarily to explain the text rather than to speculate on how the book came to be in its present form. The introduction includes an extended bibliography.

Publisher's Description

The book of Numbers tells a story that has two main characters -- God and Israel. The way the story is told sounds odd and often harsh to readers today. In spite of the difficulties imposed by Numbers on today's readers, the main point of the book is of immense importance for God's people in any age: exact obedience to God is crucial.

This comprehensive and erudite commentary -- resulting from nearly a decade of study of Numbers by Timothy Ashley -- presents a thorough explication of this significant Hebrew text. Ashley's introduction to Numbers discusses such questions as structure, authorship, and theological themes, and it features an extended bibliography of major works on the book of Numbers, concentrating mainly on works in English, French, and German.

Dividing the text of Numbers into five major sections, Ashley's commentary elucidates the theological themes of obedience and disobedience that run throughout the book's narrative. His detailed verse-by-verse comments are intended primarily to explain the Hebrew text of Numbers as we have it rather than to speculate on how the book came to be in its present form.

    I've read through the Bible twice in the last two years, and each time I've gone through Numbers, I've found myself turning to this commentary and the Tyndale OTC (Wenham). I find the two both helpful and complementary - they both include helpful info the other doesn't.

    I haven't read this through, and only turn to this when the "going gets tough" in terms of understanding some of the difficult passages in Numbers. This volume comes through nicely in those cases, making sense of the unusual most every time. But I'd supplement it with the Tyndale one as well. Also, I recently read John Walton's "Ancient Near Eastern Thought and the Old Testament," which gave me the background to make Ashley's commentary all the more insightful.
