Deuteronomy is often called “the second law-giving.”  It can also be considered Moses’ last words to the people before he died.  In this book he recounts their travels from Mt. Sinai and reviews God’s laws and regulations.  He gives them God’s instructions on how to live as God’s people in the land of Canaan.

Words to mark:  observe, remember, commandment, statutes, the LORD will (shall), defile, put away the evil (purge the evil)

The last chapters 31-34 contain the Song of Moses, his testimony and records his death.   The last chapter was obviously written by someone other than Moses.  The first five books of the Bible were written by Moses and reveal much about this man of God who spoke to God face to face.

Jesus quoted from Deuteronomy, as did many New Testament writers.
