Portion Commentary House of the Father
Thought for the Week: In the New Jerusalem, there are twelve gates on which are written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. Everyone who enters the city must enter through one of those gates. There is no gate called "Gentiles."
Commentary:By their families, by their fathers' households ... (Numbers 1:2)
The census in the wilderness illustrates the family structure and relationship of the nation of Israel. All the children of Israel were one large family. The hierarchical family relationships reveal the Bible's patriarchal worldview. The breakdown of the nation into tribe, clan and household demonstrates the strong central position of fathers.
