Why Is Deuteronomy the Favorite Book of Jesus? Daniel Block Explains

Categories New Testament Old Testament

Like
every volume in our NIVAC series, Daniel Block's commentary Deuteronomy
helps readers access the original message in a way that helps them apply it to
their own situation.

Block believes his commentary is unique because he's been wrestling with two important questions: Why is Deuteronomy the favorite book of Jesus? Why does its message underly so much of the New Testament? The answer, Block says, is "in the gospel that Moses preaches all the way through the book."

Block explains that this book is not primarily laws, but a set of potent sermons designed to shape God's people. In fact, here we consider Block's insistance that the book of Deuteronomy is a theological manifesto on par with the gospel of John, "calling on Israel to respond to God's grace with unreserved loyalty and love."

Why is Deuteronomy the favorite book of Jesus? Why does its message underly so much of the New Testament? Watch as Block explains.
