[quote=""]“Arise, O Balak, and hear;
Give ear to me, O son of Zippor!
“God is not a man, that He should lie,
Nor a son of man, that He should repent;
Has He said, and will He not do it?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?"
We know from later on in Numbers and Revelation that eventually Balaam was killed for teaching king Balak how to cause Israel to stumble in immorality.
So what are we to make of his prophecy that God is not a “son of Man?” Christ, who is God, chose to identify himself by this exact phrase. Was this prophecy also part of Balaam’s treachery? Or would this statement have been true when Balaam uttered it, since it was prior to the Incarnation?
