The Bible Jesus Read: Why Deuteronomy?
1. Reaction : We began this sermon series through Deuteronomy almost four months ago. It examined
Deuteronomy’s thirty-four chapters in fourteen sermons and fifty-six Growth Group questions. What has been your reaction to this sermon series? (there’s no wrong answer!) Take a moment to consider why you react in this way.
2. Takeaways : Deuteronomy has been called the ‘Romans’ of the Old Testament, or its primary source of systematic theology. It is the book setting the course not only for all of the remaining historical books of the Old Testament, but its prophetic books too. What have been your biggest takeaways from this look at this lofty book? What questions do you still have?
3. Repetitive : We learned back in June that the whole of the book Deuteronomy is collection of sermons Moses preached to the second generation of wilderness wanderers in the final weeks before they crossed the Jordan and began to possess the promised land. We have also learned that Moses, like all good preachers, could be repetitive. What are a few ideas he returns to again and again? Why did Israel need these messages repeated and what have you learned from them?
4. Law : Deuteronomy is arranged so that at its very center is a large collection of laws (chs. 12-26). We spent a long time talking about these laws. What principles have you learned or methods you’ve been introduced to which you will now take into your reading of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy in the future? Do these laws ‘apply’ to us today? In what way?
