The Book of Numbers : Author, Target Audience
The Book of Numbers is located within the Old Testament, and was written by the prophet Moses from 1450 - 1410 B.C. Numbers was written specifically in order to narrate the history and law of the Old World, and is directed towards the newer generations of God's followers. Although this is the primary audience, those who do not practice Christianity can also be considered a valid audience, as we are all God's children. The book of Numbers contains mankind's history, and rightly so, can be read and acknowledged by any humans.
