Study 21 From The Book of Deuteronomy is: Deuteronomy 29 and 30
- Picture the moving scene described in 29:1, 2, 10, 11, and consider what strong reasons the people had for being loyal to the Lord. Why, then did Moses fear that they would not prove steadfast? See 29:4, 18, 19; cf. Acts 20: 29, 30.
- For what purpose is revelation given, according to 29:29? Cf. Jas. 1:22. What is God’s character as revealed in chapter 30? And what is His people’s responsibility?
- Compare 30:11-14 with Rom. 10:6-9 and note ways in which the Old Testament law and the New Testament gospel are identical.
Note. 29:19. ‘The sweeping away of moist and dry alike’: a proverbial expression meaning ‘to destroy all’. It expresses here that the outcome of the idolater’s attitude and action is utter destruction.
