Conquering a Land   (Ca. 1400-1100 B.C.)

Renewal of the Covenant

“With this restatement of the laws completed, it is an appropriate time for the Israelites to reaffirm their covenant with God.  It is not a covenant to be taken lightly, for along with God’s promised blessings go the promised curses which will be imposed for breach of the covenant.  Breach of the covenant will occur when breach of the laws occurs; and breach of the law can easily occur, for the law handed down from God through Moses is the most comprehensive, radically different, and morally demanding law that any nation of people has seen to this time.”

Read: Deuteronomy 26:16-29 and Deuteronomy chapters 28, 29, 30, and 27
