The Fifth Book Of Moses Called Deuteronomy. The Argument. The Wonderful love of God toward his Church is lively set forth in this book. For albeit through their ingratitude sundry rebellions against God, for the space of forty years, Deuteronomy ; they had deserved to have been cut. The Deuteronomic Code, found in Deuteronomy, chapters 12–26, is a reinterpretation or revision of Israelite law, based on historical conditions as interpreted by the 7th-century- bc historians known as the Deuteronomists. Discovered in the Temple at Jerusalem in bc, the Deuteronomic Code attempted to . Workbook On Deuteronomy 1. Outline Of Deuteronomy. Part One: Moses’ First Sermon: “What God Has Done for Israel” (–).   In Deuteronomy chapters 12 thro Moses revealed to the Israelites a set of laws known to scholars today as the Deuteronomic code. The Deuteronomic code is one of a set of three groups of laws laid down in the first 5 books of the Bible (Pentateuch).

The Book of Deuteronomy. Deuteronomy - And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe [and] to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: Deuteronomy - And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt . The Book of Deuteronomy records Moses’ final sermon to the Israelites, which he gave just before he died and they went up to enter the Promised Land. He reminds them of how the previous generation died in the wilderness because they had disobeyed the LORD and turned aside to other gods.   Moses is identified in the book of Deuteronomy as the author (Deuteronomy , 24), and Jesus often quoted from Deuteronomy, confirming Mosaic authorship (Matthew , citing Deuteronomy –4). However, the final chapter of Deuteronomy prompts the question at hand: who wrote Deuteron since that is the record of Moses’ death? If Moses gave the Ten Commandments, then surely he may have written the Book of Deuteronomy also. Besides, the Code of Hammurabi, which antedates Moses by at least years, makes it possible certainly that Moses also left laws in codified or written form.

(3) Deuteronomy Is a Military Law Book, a Code of Conquest, a Book of Exhortation. It was intended primarily neither for Israel in the desert nor for Israel settled in Canaan, but for Israel on the borderland, eager for conquest. Deuteronomy uses some of the laws in the Covenant Code (CC), omitting much of the civil law and preserving the more moral or religious laws. Not only is Deuteronomy selective of the laws that it includes, but it also changes these laws. Deuteronomy , the Deuteronomic Code, is its oldest part of the book and the core around which the rest developed. It is a series of mitzvot (commands) to the Israelites regarding how they ought to conduct themselves in Canaan, the land promised by Yahweh, the God of Israel. The laws include (listed here in no particular order). Deuteronomic Reform, great religious reformation instituted in the reign of King Josiah of Judah (c. – bc). It was so called because the book of the Law found in the Temple of Jerusalem (c. bc), which was the basis of the reform, is considered by scholars to be the same as the law code in the book of Deuteronomy (chapters 12–26).
