Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. – Deuteronomy 6:4-5
The Bible Project has a simple mission: to break down the Bible into manageable pieces of information, and connect themes throughout the entire story. From creation, to Moses, The cross, to Paul’s letters, this is God’s book for us, his people. It’s important that we know what it says and what it means!
In this latest video from The Bible Project, we learn about the book of Deuteronomy, the last book in the Torah. There are so many rich lessons to be learned, and stories to be told within the pages of the Old Testament.
In just 6 minutes, you’ll have a clearer understanding of the purpose of the Law, and the vision God had for his people throughout time.
The Book of Deuteronomy (from Ancient Greek: Δευτερονόμιον, Deuteronómion, “second law”; Hebrew: דְּבָרִים, Devārīm, “[spoken] words”) is the fifth book of the Torah (a section of the Hebrew Bible) and the Christian Old Testament.
The Hebrew title is taken from the opening phrase Eleh ha-devarim,
“These are the words…”; the English title is from a Greek mistranslation of the Hebrew phrase mishneh haTorah hazoth, “a copy of this law”, in Deuteronomy 17:18, as to deuteronomion touto – “this second law”.
The book consists of three sermons or speeches delivered to the Israelites by Moses on the plains of Moab, shortly before they enter the Promised Land. The first sermon recapitulates the forty years of wilderness wanderings which have led to this moment, and ends with an exhortation to observe the law (or teachings), later referred to as the Law of Moses
