Unlike all of the previous obscure biblical characters, Korah’s legacy is not a positive one. Numbers 16 describes his story.
To make a long story short, Korah raises up a mob of Israelites to oppose Moses’ leadership and questioned the idea that he (Moses) was God’s only spokesperson. God didn’t take too kindly to Korah and the rebels and causes the earth to swallow them up (Numbers 16:32). Opposing God’s anointed is insulting to God.
As bad as that situation may seem, this is a hopeful story because we know the end. God, in his great mercy, used descendents of Korah to write some of the Psalms
- Jacob had 12 sons, but also had a daughter named Dinah (Gen 34:1).
- The Thief on the Cross
We do not know much more about the thief on the cross other than he was:
Crucified next to Jesus
Brought into paradise at his death
His powerful story is told in Luke 23:32-43, that describes the conversation between Christ and the two criminals crucified alongside of him.
- Abraham was circumcised when he was 99 years old (Gen 17:24).
- It’s The Most Shoplifted Book Ever
Clearly the Eighth Commandment is never considered when it comes to stealing the Bible. From books shops to hotels and places of worship where it’s available for free, the Bible is the most commonly stolen book. It’s up for debate as to why this happens, but explanations such as Bibles being too expensive to purchase or that it should be made free are seen as possible reasons.
