This milestone commentary by Jack Lundbom is intended for all readers who want to know and understand the key Pentateuchal book of Deuteronomy, which has had a huge influence on both Judaism and Christianity over the centuries. For Jews, Deuteronomy contains the Decalogue and the Shema -- Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one (6:4) -- and these are supplemented by a code of primal legislation, such as humane treatment and benevolence to the poor and needy. It is rich in theology, calling repeatedly on Israel to reject other gods and worship the Lord alone as holy. Besides drawing on language, archaeology, and comparative Near Eastern material, Lundbom's commentary employs rhetorical criticism in explicating the biblical text. Lundbom also cites later Jewish interpretation of the book of Deuteronomy and makes numerous New Testament connections. An appendix contains all citations of Deuteronomy in the New Testament.
