Understanding and Preaching Deuteronomy (OT746i)

2019 May Postgraduate Unit

Deuteronomy has been called the most important book of the Old Testament, and is often compared to Romans in the New Testament. To heed its call is to “Choose life!” (30:19). We’re familiar with its call to love God with all our heart, yet the remainder of the book is seldom read. In fact, Deuteronomy consists largely of the first major example of preaching in the Bible, yet the book is seldom tapped as a resource for preaching today.

In this unit we’ll be looking at the book of Deuteronomy in conjunction with the SMBC Biennial Preaching Conference (6-9 May). There’ll be seminars and sermons by Jonny Gibson, David Jones, Matt Fuller, Kirk Patston and Janson Condren. The unit will cover crucial aspects of interpreting Deuteronomy, critiquing sermons on it, looking at some themes and passages in detail, and dealing with issues that affect how we apply the book today.
