Deuteronomy and Numbers
The books of Numbers and Deuteronomy narrate a number of the same stories; Deut 1–3 even covers the same narrative space as the book of Numbers: the forty years or so from Sinai to the plains of Moab. This article will examine the complex relationship between these two books by considering the narratives about that time in the wilderness. These will be addressed in the following clusters: narratives told in Numbers and Deuteronomy; narratives told in Numbers and alluded to in Deuteronomy; and narratives in Numbers that are not told in Deuteronomy. These will be examined in order to shed light on the individual books of Numbers and Deuteronomy, the relationship between them, and the question of whether there was a pre-Deuteronomic narrative that retold how Israel went from the desert to the edge of the promised land. I will argue that there is no evidence for a continuous narrative tracing Israel’s journey from Sinai to Moab prior to the composition of Deut 1–3. The authors of the narratives in Numbers are indebted to this Deuteronomistic account. However, for the readers of the Pentateuch, Deut 1–3 appears as a concise summary of what has preceded, with the most important issues highlighted.
