For this Torah Portion, I look specifically at Deuteronomy 3.8-18a.

In this essay, I will again discuss the issue of redaction, including the redactions that made their way into the final form of Deuteronomy, along with some discussion about Publisher redactions and Bible Publishing.

In minor detail, I will also discuss the Torah, its application to Israel, the strangers who lived amongst the Israelites, nations outside of Israel, along with Torah applicability to Jew and Gentile believers in the NT.

Here is the discussion: Deuteronomy 3.8-18a.

For this Torah Portion, I look specifically at Deuteronomy 2.4-5, 2.8-9, 2.18-19.

I will look at those three passages. I will look at how the text of Deuteronomy reveals that the LORD apportioned land to peoples other than Israel.

Using the first passage I will discuss some background of the Edomites. With the second passage, I will discuss some background of the is the Moabites. In the third passage, I will discuss the Ammonites.

I will discuss various ethical aspects for the Israelites versus the descendants of Lot. Discuss that both Haran’s and Abraham’s descendants constituent a large portion of people. I will mention geographic locations of these various nations.

Drawing upon all of that information I will refer to Acts 17 and refer to how the ancients viewed God’s involvement in life.

Here is the discussion: Deuteronomy 2.4-5, 2.8-9, 2.18-19

Deuteronomy 2.8-13

Print Friendly

For this Torah Portion, I look specifically at Deuteronomy 2.8-13.

I will look at these six verses and how these verses reveal that there are three voices in the Book of Deuteronomy. One voice is the LORD. A second voice is Moses. The third voice is who I call the Deuteronomy Redactor.

Considering the voices found with Deuteronomy, I will discuss in more detail the authorship of Deuteronomy.

Here is the discussion: Deuteronomy 2.8-13.

Deuteronomy 1.9-18

Print Friendly

For this Torah Portion, I look specifically at Deuteronomy 1.9-18.

I will look at Moses implementing a magistrate system into Israel. In doing that, I will correlate this passage from Deuteronomy with Exodus 18.13-26, and I will discuss various aspects of how I resolve the differences between these two Torah passages.

I will discuss how the magistrate system is not unique to Israel, but is a universal truth that can be applied anywhere. Then I will discuss how these Torah passages affect one’s understanding of Matthew 18.15-18, Acts 6.1-6, and 1 Corinthians 6.1-8.

Here is the discussion Deuteronomy 1.9-18.
