PHILIPS' SERIES OF SCRIPTURE MANUALS.
BOOK OF NUMBERS,
MAP AND APPENDICES.
THE REV. HENRY LINTON, M.A.,
Vicar of Birkenhead.
The attention of our readers is directed to the following points, all of which seem necessary in order to a successful use of these Manuals at an examination :1. A careful analysis of the book, so as to know what
we are reading about in any chapter. See pp. 6-8. 2. A general but clear idea of the time at which the
several journeys were made. See App. C. 3. Reference to the Map of the Journeys, so as to connect
the places referred to with the journeys and the period during the 40 years in which they were made (all having taken place in the 1st, 2nd, and
40th years). 4. After reading carefully the notes (referring from them
continually to the map), to try to recall the information contained in them by reading over the italics in the text.
5. A good general knowledge of the Festivals of the
Jewish year (see Scriptures Arranged, by the
will be found, with an explanation). 6. A good acquaintance with the sacrifices and offerings
on each festival or other occasion. Chaps. vi., vii.,
viii., xv., xxviii., and xxix. 7. These, with a knowledge of the events contained in
the history, should suffice for a fair examination.
