Deuteronomy 1-3

  • 1: 9-18 – Until now, Moses was the Israelites leader, judge, and connection to God. In this statement he spreads the power amongst leaders and judges of the individual tribes.
  • 1:30-31 – It’s helpful to look back at God’s faithfulness in our past so we can be assured that he will continue to be faithful.
  • 1:39 – God kept his promise to give the Promised Land to the Israelites. He did not give it to the older generation because they were unfaithful, but saved it for the younger generation.
  • Chapters 2 and 3 are summarizing the events that transpired on the journey through the desert- this is partly to remind the Israelites of all that God has already done for them, and partly to help preserve the story for future generations.
