Led by Gary Himmler & Richard Zalesak. Deuteronomy is the key to the entire Hebrew Bible. It's the bridge between the stories of Exodus and Numbers, the law in Leviticus, and the narratives in Joshua, 1 and 2 Samuel & 1 and 2 Kings. All of the Bible before Deuteronomy has been, in a narrative sense, leading up to the Israelites entering the Promised Land. They've fought, been enslaved, seen God's fire, messed up, died, and been given the law.
Now, in Deuteronomy, they're on the edge of the Promised Land, so close to their goal. But don't get too excited - Moses, their leader, makes them take a really long pause. He wants them to take a deeper breath to reflect on where they've been (and think about what's to come). What better way to do that than by retelling the story?
We will study the book of Deuteronomy because we are on a journey, much like the Israelites. By comparing what Moses told the Israelites with the teachings of Jesus, we will also be able to reflect on where we've been and think about what's to come as we prepare to enter our Promised Land.
