Abstract

Balaam is known largely because of his connection with the story of the ass that spoke, and, while critics point the skeptical finger and rant against the incredible nature of the narrative, they make the usual mistake of drawing attention away from the important part, the prophecies, and centering it on one incident, which is perhaps more striking, although merely incidental.
