DAY 331: JOURNEY THROGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Continuing our journey through the final book of law, Deuteronomy, Moses continues to remind the Israelites of how they are to behave in the Promised Land.
Before reading Deuteronomy 20-22, pray for understanding of today’s reading. Read Deuteronomy 20-22. Let’s journey!
Deuteronomy is the fifth and final book of the Jewish Torah and concludes the Books of Moses in the Christian Old Testament. As with the previous four, Moses wrote this book, which retells many of the events recorded in the previous books. Its purpose is the help guide the new generation that was preparing to enter the Promised Land. It is a reminder to the new generation to remain faithful to the covenant made between the Israelites and God.
Deuteronomy 20-22: Moses address warfare, unsolved murders, and captive women. Moses reminds the Israelites of the rights of firstborn sons and how to handle a rebellious son. Moses discusses various laws, and marriage violations. (Deuteronomy 20:1-22:30)
