Bible Study with Jairus - Numbers 5 Numbers 5 contains three stories. The first story is about Jehovah instructing Moses to send away all people with leprosy from the camp. In the next story, Jehovah is instructing Moses to let the Israelites offer up sacrifices for their sins and offenses. The third story is about Jehovah telling Moses how to deal with the problem of a husband suspecting that his wife was unfaithful. What is the relationship between these three stories? Let us first look at the relationship between Numbers 4 and Numbers 5. In our previous study, we mentioned that Numbers 4 covered three different levels of ministry: the ministry of Aaron as high priest and his sons as priests in the Holy of Holies and sanctuary; the ministry of the Kohathites, the children of Levi, who were carrying the things in the sanctuary; and the ministry of Gershon, the son of Levi, who was carrying the things in the outer courtyard. This represents three different stages of service. Jehovah specifically reminded Moses and Aaron not to let the Kohathites be destroyed because Jehovah foresaw that the Kohathites would rebel against God. They were greedy for the priesthood of Aaron and his sons. In the end, they rebelled against God and were judged by Him, leading them to be almost destroyed. This rebellion also brought a plague, which was later stopped when Aaron took the incense burner and prayed (2 Samuel 24). Similarly, Aaron and Miriam also rebelled against Moses, which brought Miriam a judgment from God of leprosy. Leprosy was a result of rebelling against God and the authorities He established. So, when Numbers 5 talked about sending people with leprosy away from the camp, it did not come out of the blue. After Miriam was afflicted with leprosy, Aaron pleaded with Moses to intercede, and Moses begged Jehovah to forgive her sins. Jehovah said, "If her father had spit in her face, would she not have been in disgrace for seven days? Confine her outside the camp for seven days; after that, she can be brought back." Numbers 12:14, NIV). Read More:
