Quick outline of Deuteronomy. Recap of Israel’s journey from Egypt (Dt 1–3) Recap of Israel’s relationship with God (Dt 4–10) How to love God and keep His commandments (Dt 11–26) Blessings, curses, and restoration (Dt 27–30) The death of Moses (Dt 31–34) More books related to Deuteronomy. Joshua (next book of the Bible) Numbers. The genre of the book of Deuteronomy is not much different from that of Exodus. It is Narrative History and Law, although there is a Song from Moses just after he commissions Joshua. This song describes the History that the Israelites had experienced. Moses wrote Deuteronomy approximately B.C. The key personalities are Moses and Joshua. 2. What is the literary genre of the book of Deuteronomy as a whole? Contrary to most of the Torah, Deuteronomy is more of an “application” type of message. The author, Moses, appears to use five literary techniques when composing this book: Narrative Story Telling (Deut. , , , , , ). The Command to Leave Horeb. 1 These are the words Moses spoke to all Israel in the wilderness east of the Jordan —that is, in the Arabah —opposite Suph, between Paran and Tophel, Laban, Hazeroth and Dizahab. 2 (It takes eleven days to go from Horeb to Kadesh Barnea by the Mount Seir road.) (3 In the fortieth year, on the first day of the eleventh month, Moses proclaimed to the Israelites.
The Book of Deuteronomy. The title of Deuteronomy in Hebrew is Debarim, “words,” from its opening English title comes from the Septuagint of , deuteronomion, “copy of the law”; this title is appropriate because the book replicates much of the legal content of the previous books, serving as a “second law.”It brings to a close the five books of the Torah or Pentateuch. The book of Deuteronomy, along with Psalms and Isaiah, reveals much about the attributes of God. Thus, it is directly quoted over 40 times in the New Testament (exceeded only by Psalms and Isaiah), with many more allusions to its content. The book of Deuteronomy contains Moses’s three great final sermons to the children of Israel. “The first discourse is found in Deut. 1–4 and is introductory. The second discourse (Deut. 5–26) consists of two parts: (1) 5–11, the Ten Commandments and a practical exposition of them, (2) 12–26, a code of laws, which forms the nucleus. Peter Craigie's "The Book of Deuteronomy" was one of the first of the commentaries in the New International Commentary of the Old Testament (NICOT), having been published in Unlike some of the commentaries in the NICOT, Craigie's is, in my estimation, one that is primarily beneficial for the beginning by:
DEUTERONOMY SUMMARY. Deuteronomy is the last book of the Pentateuch. Its name means second law. As it is actually repetition of the law already given there in Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers. It is a sermon Moses gave to the Israelites before they entered into the promised land. Moses recalls the events of there history and the law. Author: Moses wrote the Book of Deuteronomy, which is in fact a collection of his sermons to Israel just before they crossed the Jordan. “These are the words which Moses spoke” (). Someone else (Joshua, perhaps) may have written the last chapter. Date of Writing: These sermons were given during the day period prior to Israel’s entering the Promised Land. In the book of Deuteronomy Moses is writing a series of speeches to the people of Israel in the plains of Moab on the day before they entered the land of Canaan, the promised land. these messages are intended to speak to every member of the congregation of Israel, not just the religious. Deuteronomy, (“Words”), fifth book of the Old Testament, written in the form of a farewell address by Moses to the Israelites before they entered the Promised Land of Canaan. The speeches that constitute this address recall Israel’s past, reiterate laws that Moses had communicated to the people a.
