This title, meaning "second law," arose from a misunderstanding of the term in This is actually a much more appropriate title for the book since the "words" of Moses and God are a central feature of the book.
This book is the fifth and final book of the Pentateuch Gk: Deuteronomy is organized as a series of three discourses by Moses 1: These "words" recall the past activities of God in order to build identity for the present community.
The people are then called to continued faithfulness in the future based on that communal identity. This teaching dimension and the resulting theological linking of the community past, present, and future form the literary and theological dynamic of the entire book.
The first discourse 1: The second discourse recounts the giving of the Ten Words Commandments at Sinai. This is followed by an explanation of the first commandment centered around the Shema Deut.
Specific instruction in communal life begins in chapter 12, concluding with a covenant ceremony and homily focusing on their responsibilities to God and each other. The third discourse encapsulates the first two, with a historical review, covenant renewal, admonitions to faithfulness, and warnings of the consequences of disobedience.
The conclusion includes instructions concerning Moses' successor, final instructions and liturgies, the Song and Blessing of Moses, and his death.Old Testament Introduction () Lecture 7: Historical Books Overview Page 1 of 11 LECTURE 7 HISTORICAL BOOKS OVERVIEW REDEMPTIVE HISTORY INTRODUCTION I.

Critically reviewing the presuppositions of scholars reaching back to Martin Noth, and using careful analysis of motif and characterization at each redactional level in each book of the Deuteronomistic History, Peterson asks where we might locate a figure with both motive and opportunity to draw up a proto-narrative including elements of Joshua, Judges, Samuel, and the first part of 1 Kings.
