This Bible study covers the book of the introduction of Deuteronomy as well as chapter 1. Deuteronomy is the fifth book of the Pentateuch which was written by Moses and is considered the heartbeat of the Old Testament. It covers the last two months of the 40 years of the Israelites wandering in the wilderness. Deuteronomy was a series of “sermons” given by Moses concerning the covenant renewal with the new generation of Israelites getting ready to enter the Promised Land. It is a historical retrospective of the 40 years of wandering to make plain that God would be with them if they would obey Him.
