As we have seen all quarter, Moses is the central mortal in Deuteronomy. His life, his character, his messages pervade the book. Though, yes, Deuteronomy is about God and His love for the people of Israel, God often used Moses to reveal that love and to speak to His people Israel.
Now, as we come to the end of our study of Deuteronomy, we also come to the end of Mosesâ€™ life, at least his life here.
As expressed by the author Ellen G. White: â€śMoses knew that he was to die alone; no earthly friend would be permitted to minister to him in his last hours. There was a mystery and awfulness about the scene before him, from which his heart shrank. The severest trial was his separation from the people of his care and loveâ€”the people with whom his interest and his life had so long been united. But he had learned to trust in God, and with unquestioning faith he committed himself and his people to His love and mercy.â€ťâ€”Patriarchs and Prophets, pp. 470, 471.
As Mosesâ€™ life and ministry revealed much about the character of God, so, too, does his death and resurrection.
