The topic for this quarter is Present Truth in Deuteronomy. It is believed that King Josiah tore His clothes when the book of Deuteronomy was read to Him because He and His people were not doing what was written in it. Deuteronomy comes from the Latin word, Deuteronomium which means “second law”.
This law was given to the people of Israel as they prepared to cross into Canaan. They wandered in the wilderness for 40 years till some went in. It can be related to the world’s present condition now, we are waiting for the promised land (a much better one) and while we hope to enter into that promised land this book of the law must influence the way we do things so we can partake in God’s kingdom.
