Message from the Author. Hello, my name is Booker T Jones, Jr. I'm the Author of the "Unzipping the Law" Series. The Unzipping the Law series cover the Saga of the sons of Israel's last days of Egyptian bondage to their event filled arrival at the borders of the "Promised Land". The book of Numbers opens on the first day of the second month of the second year after Israel had departed the land of Egypt.This is the book where the census of the men able to go out to war was taken. The book also introduces us to the Levitical Priesthood. The book of Numbers walks us through the wanderings in the Wilderness. Numbers is patterned like the book of Acts in the New Testament. It walks you through those remaining 38 years before coming to the edge of the Promised Land. The book ends on first day of the eleventh month of the fortieth year after they departed Egypt.
