Now, it gets intense.  You see, God didn’t just provide for His people, but went out of His way to miraculously send bread from heaven to feed these folks.  It is this very bread that Israel complained about, saying they loathed it.  So…God gave them serpents.  There was a plague of fiery serpents that bit the people, killing several.  Thus, the nation repented of their sin, and God instantly told Moses what to do to remedy this plague.  What did Moses do?

-Sacrifice 70 lambs-

-Speak to that rock now-

-Put a brass serpent on a pole-

-Nothing-
