Unlikely Heroes: Phineas

Bible Text: Numbers 25:1-13Series: Unlikely Heroes

The seduction of the Israelites and the death of 24,000 is, at its root, the result of one man’s counsel. That man is Balaam, a wicked prophet. Fortunately, the satisfaction of God’s anger and the termination of the plague is also the result of one man’s courage. That man is our unlikely hero, Phinehas.
