Gilbert House Fellowship #43: Deuteronomy 3-5

moses5MOSES CONTINUES his review of the Law and the history of the Israelites from the time Yahweh brought them out of Egypt. We discuss the land of Bashan and its evil reputation, the hints in the text that argue for its authenticity (like Moses complaining to the people that “the Lord was angry with me because of you”), and the prophecy of Deuteronomy 4, which foreshadows Israel’s future dispersal among the nations.

We also detour into a brief discussion of Mount Nebo, from which Moses would see the Promised Land, and prophecies in Amos 9 and Jeremiah 30 that show God’s unconditional promise to restore Israel to the land someday.

  1. I disagree regarding “no people” remembered Egypt and the Exodus. Except some Kids.
    Num. 14:33 says, “every one of you twenty years old or more” were to die in desert.
    So all people from 50 to 60 should remember well, only Hebrews aged 45 or less have blurred memories.
