The whole book of Deuteronomy is telling the story of a people that made a deal with God. They made promises to serve him according to the way that he wanted to be served. Deuteronomy laid out all the wonderful things that would happen to them if they were obedient and kept their promises. It also laid out what would happen if they did not keep their promise. It was pretty harsh too.
Romans 12:13 states, “Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality.” Giving to those less fortunate is one of the most important things that I can do in my life. The greatest joy of service is to share it with others; Unfortunately, the elation of service is often overcome by the need to fill volunteer requirements for school functions. I once thought that I knew the complete intrinsic value of volunteering: working with friends to support the community. Focused on the bigger picture, I lost sight of the meaning of service to the less fortunate; However, I have since changed this, and I now align my understanding with Romans 12:13.
Translators have struggled with the exact wording of Deuteronomy 6:4, but all agree, it is teaching that their is only one God. The verse is the Hebrew Sh'ma, and it says, "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD". Throughout the Old Testament's history of Israel, The Jews

Men, Hebrews 4:14-5:10. Americans are a bit fast and loose with assigning roles or positions. For high level employment there is a multilevel interview process, background check, and various degrees of vetting. Lineage seldom comes into the equation. For most church roles we plug people into places where "they have the heart for it." We've all heard it, wether they're qualified or not. But for the role of priest in the time of Hebrews the requirements were a little less casual. Priests then were appointed. No one assumed the role, but were called to the role by God. Jesus is called to be high priest on our behalf. But in the time of Hebrews a priest was generally selected from a particular line of priests dating back ages. In Jesus's case,
Moreover, a recurring time motif used to illustrate “Deuteronomy” as the results of hard-work, rather than inspiration, is expressed in the text in the comparison of history to a game of cat’s cradle. In this metaphor, the narrator proposes that, “History should be a […] game for playing,” and, like the strings of the cat’s cradle, by association, the figurative “strings of time” can be “clawed at, chewed at, and rearranged” into new patterns (Winterson 93). This idea of “rearranging,” as the act of “moving (something) into a more acceptable position,” is particularly significant because it indicates a view of time that is not just possible to review, but is also malleable (OED). Through this, “Deuteronomy” can be seen as a conscious chapter
Deuteronomy, though often deemphasized by the modern Christian church, is an incredibly valuable and important text to those practicing the Christian faith. For many years, there was no debate over who authored Deuteronomy because Christians and Jews both fervently believed that Moses wrote the book; however, that assumption has been disputed fiercely in the years following the Enlightenment (Block, 26-27). In this essay, I will compare the opposing theories of Deuteronomy’s composition by examining their origins and the evidence used to support each side, and I will conclude with the assertion that the Deuteronomistic Historian is the most likely author of the book.
Why the Bible is the most popular book in the world. The Bible is the Christian scriptures, consisting of the 66 books of the Old and New Testament, which contains God’s words. The Bible teaches of God’s action in the world, and his purpose with all creation. The Bible is the work of over forty human authors and writing it took place over sixteen centuries. It is a collection of 66 books all written in different styles and all containing the message that God desired us to have (“What is the Bible”). There are an estimated 2.2 billion Christians around the world (Chappell). Between Christians and others who study the Bible, whether other religions or academics, the Bible has consistently been the most printed, purchased, read, and popular book in the world.
The expansion of Christianity into Samaria happened almost entirely thanks to Philip. He was one of the first missionaries to go Samaria and performed many miracles for the people there and people noticed that the power of God was present. And the expansion into Judea was largely Jesus, he was
He was known as a tragic figure, due to his faithfulness due to Gods call. One aspect of the call is that he never married; he had no family, children, or grandchildren. Life to Jeremiah was one big object lesson of God's word. He was known as Judah's weeping prophet, because of the abuse he received at the hands of fellow priest and prophets from kings and even from his own family. God also commanded Jeremiah to remain celibate. (Tullock & McEntire, 2012).
For those who don't understand the purpose of studying Torah, Ki Teitzei can seem like dry reading of a bunch of rules that few Christians understand, let alone believe are still relevant. Seventy-four of the Torah’s 613 commandments (mitzvots) are in this week's Torah portion. For the sake of containing the content of this lesson inside an article, instead of a book, I want to focus on just Deuteronomy 21:10-13.
To properly nurture the children, parents must first realize they are on loan by God. “You must view your children as a stewardship from God. That is, they have been placed into your life by God so that you can raise them according to His principles to do His will when they are old enough to understand what that is” (Stanley, 1986, p.32). Personally, this should begin with teaching them the Ten Commandments and a healthy fear of the Lord (see Ex. 20:1-26).
Biblical Viewpoint Genesis 2:24 (NIV) says, “That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.” Males and females are different but God made them different for the purpose of completion and unity rather than any sort of domination over one another. God created men and women to be partners and to reflect his love. Genesis 1:27 (NIV) says, So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” God did not discriminate when he created men and women; not the were made in His image. That should be enough proof alone to argue gender inequality is unfair.
The Bible is arguably the most significant book ever written. Controversial in nature, loved and questioned by many. The Bible has been questioned since its creation. An eye witness accounts of historical events that to this day, still have an impact on civilization. There are ongoing myths, conspiracies, and theories
Oh! What A Day! The day that Jesus invited Peter, Andrew, James and John to follow Him was perhaps their greatest day. Now, those men had known Jesus before that day, but not as the Messiah. Andrew had been a disciple of John the Baptist (John 1) and had heard John announce that the Messiah was already in the midst of Israel. Two days later, John pointed out Jesus as the “Lamb of God.” (John 1:36) Andrew and another disciple [probably John the apostle] left John the Baptist and spent the day with Jesus. When Andrew learned that Jesus of Nazareth was the Messiah, he found his brother, Peter, and brought him to the Lord. (John1:37 & 41) Andrew was not one of the more outstanding apostles; however, it was he who introduced Peter to Jesus
