Prophet ?[edit]

I noticed that the article belongs to these two categories: "Prophets of the Hebrew Bible" and "Prophets in Judaism". My question is; since when is Pinchos considered a prophet? Itzse 00:00, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Balaam[edit]

While this article seems intent that Balaam was only connected to the sins at Peor in the New Testament, it is apparent in Numbers 31:16 that he was the direct instigator of the affair. Could someone fix this error? Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.212.39.92 (talk) 08:50, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Response to "Racism" Claims[edit]

Was tempted to put a note in the article, but such things might be out of place, and will note here anyhow. The argument that the righteous zeal of Phinehas came about because of the immorality of interracial relations is spurious at best, thanks most immediately to Numbers 31:18. In this passage, the army officers are allowed to spare "for themselves" the virgins of the Midianite people, slaying only those who were not virgins. Moses would hardly allow this if the original offense was "interracial relations." --SwnyMac (talk) 00:41, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Bad Link to Flavius Josephus's Antiquities of the Jews[edit]

In the article there is a link to Flavius Josephus's Antiquities of the Jews, Book IV, Chapter VI, Paragraphs 6-12, but it is bad. Could someone fix it? Thanks. Tweisbach (talk) 12:06, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
