A Sermon by Dr. Bob Griffin, Teaching Elder at Sovereign Grace Church

During those 38 years – a lifetime for a generation – there was much movement but no progress. Seems like my life sometimes, going thru motions and then celebrate another birthday and still in the wilderness.
• 1 – Egypt to Mount Sinai (Ex 12:31-18:27)
• 2 – Stay at Mount Sinai (Ex 19:1-Num 10:10)
• 3 – First approach to Promised Land and aborted effort (Num 10:11-14:45)
• 4 – Wandering in wilderness and Kadesh for 38 years (Num 15:1-20:13)
• 5 – Second (final) approach to the Promised Land (Num 20:14-Josh 2:24)
