Study 11 From The Book of Deuteronomy is: Deuteronomy 12 and 13
In the analysis of the book of Deuteronomy, the first part of this code of Law sets forth regulations governing the practice of religion, and is thus a detailed application of the first four commandments.
- How does chapter 12 relate to the first commandment and chapter 13 to the second?
- How does the regulation of chapter 13 demonstrate the priority of God’s will over alleged ‘results’ respect of person, ties of blood and great numbers? Mk. 13:22; Gal. 1:8; 2:11; Lk. 14:26; Acts 4: 19:20.
Note. The provision of one sanctuary to which all sacrifices must be brought was a safeguard against idolatrous worship at ancient shrines of the Canaanites. Cf. 2 Ki. 17: 10-12.
