Deuteronomy Intro

The title by itself has very deep meaning; the English get the word from the Greek, Deuteronomion, meaning “second law”. The Hebrews call it, Devarim, or “spoken words”. However you address it, God is making a point through His “spoken words” in His “Second Law”.

Deuteronomy is the last of the 5 books of what is known as the Pentateuch or Torah, God’s law. 

There is one underlying theme that seems to stand out consistently throughout Deuteronomy…Shema, or Listen. Listen with extreme attentiveness to detail. God does not fly by the seat of His pants, nor does He desire us to. God is a God who is in to details, order, structure, and discipline. George Patten once said “You cannot be disciplined in great things and undisciplined in small things.”

God wants His children to enjoy living, but not frivolously. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.-Eph 2:10.
