The structure of the book of Deuteronomy is patterned after the structure of the ancient covenant
treaties. This is a clear indication that the main theological intention of Mosesâ€™ last lesson is about Godâ€™s covenant with His people. Because God is eternal, the primary quality of His covenant is that it is â€śan everlasting covenantâ€ť (Gen. 17:7). Our study of the â€ścovenantâ€ť helps us to understand Godâ€™s relationship with His people. Lesson Themes:
The God of life. The Lord established His covenant with Israel, not because of them and who they were, but because of Himself and who He isâ€”the God of life.
The chosen people. Because of Godâ€™s faithfulness to the fathers, He has chosen Israel to be His covenant people.
A holy people. Called by the God of life to be the covenant people, they are to be a holy people, as well.
