Introducing Deuteronomy

Deuteronomy, from the Dead Sea Scrolls (4Q41 1)

A section of Deuteronomy, from one of the Dead Sea Scrolls(4Q41 1)

Deuteronomy is a more static work than, say, Genesis or Exodus. Presented as a series of addresses by Moses to the people before they enter the Promised Land, it lacks some of the excitement of dramatic stories like the Flood or the saga of Joseph and his brothers. But it is an important book for the teaching it contains and its own historic context is one of compelling interest. Join me in an exploration of some of the basics of Deuteronmy in the following documents:
