  • Chapter 13 shows how the people obeyed Gods command to explore the land. Twelve spies were selected, one from each tribe of Israel, to explore the land and bring back a report to Israel. The spies reported that the land was good, rich with milk and honey (Numbers 13:27), the people were strong and the cities large and fortified (Numbers 13:28). Things took a downturn when 10 of the spies spread a bad report among the people (Numbers 13:3133). To take the land would be difficult! They would have to fight these huge people in their strong cities. How quickly the spies had forgotten the mighty God who brought them out of Egypt and would go before them, driving out the nations to give them the land. Only Caleb and Joshua trusted God (Numbers 13:30; 14:69). The rest of the people, however, grumbled against God. They rejected Joshua and Caleb and attempted to stone them.

    As a result, Gods anger burned against his people. Their faithlessness and disobedience was abominable, especially since God was just about to fulfil his promises to them. Initially, God was preparing to wipe out Israel completely and start again with Moses and his family (Numbers 14:1112). However, Moses was quick to defend Gods honour and reputation and to intercede for Israel (Numbers 14:1319). God relented, forgiving the people and keeping his promisebut to the next generation. God declared on oath that the grumbling generation would not enter into the Promised Land but would die in the desert as they had asked to do (Numbers 14:2025). So Israel wandered in the desert for 40 years until everyone over 20 years of age died and their children had grown. This account reveals God to be faithful, gracious and just and able to fulfil his promises, despite the disobedience and faithlessness of his people.

    LESSON AIM To help students to understand that even when

    his people are disobedient, God is trustworthy and still keeps his promises.

    LESSON OUTCOMESStudents will learn about:

    the 12 spies who were sent to explore the land that God had promised to give Israel

    how Israel was disobedient to God.

    Students will learn to: state which promise to Abraham God was

    going to fulfil recognise Gods faithfulness to his people,

    even when they are disobedient.

    MEMORY VERSEChrist died only once to take away the sins of many people. But when he comes again, it will not be to take away sin. He will come to save everyone who is waiting for him. Hebrews 9:28 (CEV)

    Bible backgroundLessons 16 showed that God rescued his people from Egypt with a mighty hand. He made a covenant with Israel and brought them through the desert to the edge of the Promised Land. While Gods people did show some faithful obedience to the instruction of their good and powerful God, Israels complaints against God and their disobedience to his word (Numbers 1121) were clear. Their most blatant rejection of God is recorded in Numbers 1314.

    Display the Visual aid on page 18 of Gods big promises to Abraham from Lesson 1 and ask a student to read it out.

    God certainly kept his promise that Abraham would have a very large family. The whole nation of Israel had come from his son Isaac. Another promise was that God said he would give his people land.

    There in Kadesh-Barnea, the people of Israel were excited. They couldnt wait to go into the land that God had promised them. But before they could enter the land, God told Moses to send 12 men to go into the land and bring back a report of what it was like.
