Search The Scriptures —Study 19 — Deuteronomy 27: 1-28:14

Study 1 9 From The Book of Deuteronomy is: Deuteronomy 27: 1-28:14search the srciptures

  1. What ways does God use, through His servants, Moses, the elders and the priests, to impress upon His people how absolutely He requires obedience to all the laws of chapters 5:26?
  2. What abiding principles emerge from chapter 27 concerning (a) the authority of ministers to pronounce judgment on sinners in God’s name (cf. 1 Tim. 5:20; Tit. 1:13; 2:15), and (b) the failure of the law to bring life? E.g., although Israel literally obeyed verses 2-8 (see Jos. 8:30-35), they soon broke the other laws. Cf.  Rom. 8:2-4; Gal. 3:10-12.
  3. Contrast the nature of the blessings of 28:1-14 with the New Testament phrase ‘every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places’ (Eph. 1:3). What difference between the old and new covenants is here indicated?  To what extent do the promises of Dt. 28:1-14 still apply to us?

Note.  27:15-26. Note that the offences mentioned here are mainly such as might escape the detection and punishment of courts of law.
