Excerpt from Sabbath-Day Journeys: A Study of the Thirty-Third Chapter of Numbers
The example of our Lord and of His apostles may be pleaded as authority for the method of interpretation em ployed. Particularly may an appeal be made to I Co rinthians, the tenth chapter, and most particularly to the sixth verse of the chapter: N ow these things were our examples or, as it is rendered in the margin of the Revised Version, In these things they became figures of us. What befell the Israelites in the desert is a sublime and beautiful panorama of 'the work of grace in the human heart. All the trials and sufferings, as well as the joys and encouragements, of the Christian's training are here prefigured. It is not to be wondered at that Marah and Elim, Rephidim and Sinai, and many other stations appear repeatedly in the Church's hymns and homilies., A Closer study should yield added, if not more precious, results.
