Deuteronomy Sermon Series at Eastwood

deuteronomy

The book of Deuteronomy deals with many of the key themes that the rest of the bible takes up. The OT prophets relied on the theological insights of this book in their words to Israel and Judah. Its theology undergirds the OT the way the book of Romans casts its shadow over the new. Gordon Fee and Douglas Stuart say that “Deuteronomy had more influence on the rest of the biblical story (both Old and New Testament) than any other book of the Bible.” In this book, Moses is doing something that is still important for all believers. Will we remain faithful in the midst of a culture that rails against God? How do we remain holy and what does that look like? What are the consequences of falling away? How do we face the challenges of faith that will surely come our way? Will we fall into the trap of forgetfulness and not remember the mighty work of God in delivering us? These remain some of the greatest challenges facing Christians today. In this series, we will tease out how Deuteronomy speaks relevantly to us today. The Word of God is living and sharper than any two edged sword.
