Bamidbar prefaces Shavuot with good reason. The gematria of Bamidbar is 248, a remez to the 248 of the 613 positive commandments, encouraging us to take action and prepare. Secondly, this speaking to Moshe in the midbar was the second Sinaic experience, where we were now a nation carrying the Torah among us.
