Mike Penny of the Open Bible Trust toured through America and visited Northside Bible Church on October 21-23, 2009 to give a seminar on Numbers in the New Testament. There were 6 sessions given over a three day period. Session 1 introduces the topic and studies the three divisions in the New Testament. These are the Gospel Period, The Acts Period, and the Post Acts Period. The lesson then looks at events statistically through these periods to see what had changed. Session 1 begins the analysis looking at the words Abraham, Issac, Jacob, Israel, and Israelite.
