In this session Dr. Saleska introduces us to the Book of Joshua, in which we see the transfer of authority for the Children of Israel from Moses to Joshua.
The title Deuteronomy means “Second Law” and that’s what the book presents; a review of the Law given to Israel at Sinai, and a rehearsal of the history of the forty years of desert wandering. Yet, much of the book is new. Listen as Dr. Saleska explains the theological foundations for Israel in the Promised Land.
Dr. Saleska begins this session of Christ in Every Word by returning to Deuteronomy 18 and the prophecy about Jesus Christ. Then he takes you back to Chapter 5 and the second time Moses presents the 10 Commandments.
Join Dr. Saleska and Dr. Oberdeck as they begin the fifth and final book of Moses, Deuternonomy. In this introduction you will discover that a proper introduction to this book begins with Chapter 18, not Chapter 1!
In this episode Dr. Saleska brings the study of the fourth book of Moses, Numbers, to a conclusion. The Wilderness Wanderings are nearly over, and preparations are being made for the Promised Land. Deuteronomy soon follows.
The circumstances surrounding the daughters of Zelophehad are just one of the difficulties encountered by Moses in Numbers 25-28. Listen as Dr. John Saleska explains the answers given to Moses by God.
One interesting puzzle about the account of Balaam and Balak in Numbers is figuring out the role of Balaam. Is he a true prophet or a false prophet? Dr. John Saleska draws the appropriate conclusion at the end of this podcast. You might find it surprising!
