Numbers 17: The entire congregation of Israel didn't believe Moses was the chosen one when God opens up the earth and Korah et al are thrown into the fire....or when the plague attacks them from God....but they stop their rebellion when Aaron's rod buds?
Uhm..... Why? Am thinking it's because the budding of Aaron's rod is life-affirming? Because the budding of Aaron's rod is a creative life-affirming godly act rather than a destructive act?
It is the goodness of God that calls men to repentance, as the prophet says.
Also, is this Korah episode the first mention of hell in Scripture?
