Obedience and Holiness

Deuteronomy 12-26

(Reading: Dt 12:1-14 & 26:16-19)



Lots of laws for living in the land


laws which extend the 10 commandments


laws which show nothing is irrelevant to God


laws which remind the people of God’s holiness


laws for living as:

                      God’s People

                      in God’s Place

                      under God’s Rule



Israel were to be holy to the Lord their God 

– in everything




What about us? 



Deuteronomy – three ‘sermons’ from Moses

1.     a history lesson (chapters 1-4)

2.     Gods law’s and decrees (chapters 5-28)

3.     looking to the future (chapters 29-30)

transition from Moses to Joshua (chapters 31-34)
