In Numbers 22-24 we have an angel only seen by a donkey who speaks. We have a pagan prophet, Balaam, who worships other gods, not God alone. This same prophet beats the donkey but ultimately speaks God’s message to the King of Moab. And this king of Moab, Balak, is scared out of his mind as he sees the people of Israel camped ominously on the plains of Moab.
What does all this have to say to us today, if anything?
