Deuteronomy is probably not the first book any preacher would choose to preach, and yet Jesus quoted it regularly. It is the climax of the Pentateuch. It explains the fundamental categories of blessings and curse which explain the rest of Israel’s history up until exile and return. It offers up a choice for God’s people – life or death, blessing or curse. Moses exhorts the people to choose to love the Lord and obey him in response to his grace today.
In his helpful guide Matt Fuller suggests ways preachers might want to tackle Deuteronomy and shows the important of preaching the book to Christians. He urges them to preach Deuteronomy as an urgent and passionate call to love the Lord wholeheartedly, to choose to love him each and every day.
This series is designed to help the pastor/preacher, a small group leader or a youth worker teach their way through a Biblical book. It will help you in planning and executing a lesson advising on background, structure, key points and application.
About Matt Fuller
Matt is the vicar at Christ Church Mayfair where he has been since it was planted 20 years ago. He’s authored various books but this one took the longest because Deuteronomy really is a treasure. He’s thankful for every church and conference he’s preached at in the last few years being willing to hear sermons on it!
