Preaching Deuteronomy


The very thought of Deuteronomy is enough to elicit a yawn from many Christians. Statutes, stipulations, sanctions—the epitome of irrelevant Old Testament law, right? Not so fast. The capstone of the Pentateuch, Deuteronomy lays the foundations for the flow of the rest of Old Testament theology. Prophecy, wisdom, and biblical history all find their "genesis" here. That's why grasping the theology of Deuteronomy not only opens the way to preaching a helpful series on this book, it has the potential to transform our Christ-centered preaching of the Old Testament.
