Songs from Numbers
This is the fourth entry in a series on Songs from the Books of the Bible.
Southern Gospel songs focus on many of the highest themes known to mankind—songs of Salvation, the Cross, the Resurrection, and eternity. But critics claim that they focus on these themes to the exclusion of other Biblical themes which are appropriate and perhaps necessary to address in song.
For how many chapters in Numbers can we find Southern Gospel songs addressing their themes?
- Chapter 9:15-23: Led by a Cloud (Hoppers, Crossmen Quartet)
- Chapter 9:15-23: Fire by Night, Cloud By Day (Cumberland Quartet)
