This book was written to the second generation who were about to enter the Promised Land. Before he died, Moses repeated some of the laws and reminded them of their journey with God in the last forty years and pleaded with them to keep the covenant. However, he told the story in a sort of haphazard way that is not as organized as Leviticus. Here, he repeats laws and groups unrelated laws together. The narrative makes sense if you see it as a part of the coordinated story of a prophecy.

In Deuteronomy, Moses outlines the First Coming of the Messiah from Mount Zion in heaven to tabernacle with men, until He rescues the final generation at the Second Coming.

There are many words used to describe the different types of instructions given in the Torah. They have not always been used consistently by translators. Ezekiel gives us a clue as to their purpose.
The Spirit of The Torah. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and you shall keep my judgments, and do them. (Ezekiel 36: 26-27)

Jesus The Deliverer Of Israel Learns The Will Of God
He must avoid the mistakes of the children of Israel on the Exodus. Moses' pleas to the second generation instruct Him what to do. He must obey the statutes and judgments and the Ten Commandments and He must love God completely.
Keeping the Covenant. Then I said, "Behold I have come (in the scroll of the book it is written of Me) to do your will, O God."
Having an Obedient Heart. This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days says the Lord. I will put My laws upon their heart, and on their mind I will write them."
(Hebrews 10: 7, 15)
The will of God is the Ten Commandments and the Ten Commandments are the Covenant.
Covenant. And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone. (Deuteronomy 4: 13)

Jesus The Deliverer Of Israel Possesses The Land (The Final 3.5 Years)
By this point Jesus knows what will happen to Him, so now He is ready to take possession of the land and fulfill all that was written about Him. He begins His three year journey through Israel, calling twelve disciples as the statutes instructed Him to do.

The Deliverer Of Israel Possesses The Land (The Final Week)
Jesus completes His ministry in Israel. He begins by coming to Jerusalem on a donkey.

The Deliverer Of Israel Suffers The Curses
The next set of instructions are to the people.

Jesus was the one faithful Jew from the first generation who will cross over alive with the final generation.

Objections Jewish Objections To Jesus (He Did Not Keep Jewish Laws). As this series of lessons on the Torah showed, He kept all the laws because the laws showed Him what to do. When we come to the prophecies in the New Testament, we will show the conquering Messiah keeping all the Jewish laws in the Torah, not just the Ten Commandments.
In a future lesson, we will show what He really did when He appeared to change the laws on revenge and hatred as He tried to establish a righteous court system by transferring all judgment and punishment to Himself and took it out of the hands of humans who were historically unfair and unjust.

Repeat 613 Mitzvot: Repetition and Enlargement
Jews teach that there are 613 mitzvot (commandments) in the Torah, including the ten commandments. These are not to be associated with the commandments they added by tradition, that Jesus rejected. Rather, these are detailed commandments given by God that are based on the blessings and the curses. They elaborate on the Ten Commandments and the curses by repeating and enlarging on them.

The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law. (Deuteronomy 29: 29) Time: 140 minutes
