The “Deuteroevangelium” in Numbers 21–24?

Kevin Chen has an interesting post here where he suggests that Numbers 21–24 should be considered the “deuteroevangelium” since it braids distinctive elements of Genesis 3:15, the "protoevangelium" and related Abrahamic Covenant texts. I am not sure I am convinced but it is an interesting proposal that I want to think on a bit more.
