True Bible scholars understand the morals of Old Testament stories as well as the details, which are just as important. What would the book of Numbers be if it weren't for all those details and digits? At the same time, Numbers, a biblical text primarily about the Israelites' journey to the promised land of Canaan, is full of adages — dos and don'ts — that all believers can heed.
Old Testament stories, like the tales found in Numbers, are quite complex and highly interpretive, especially in the books by major prophets, such as Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel. Some theologians insist that not even preacher school can teach how to interpret Old Testament prophecies correctly, that you need to be divinely appointed to do such work. We say there are informative nuggets in the prophecies and in the other stories about the Israelites' plight that all people can appreciate.
