    In this passage, Moses recites the Ten Commandments for the second time. Is this just repetition or is something deeper happening here? Why does God give us commands?

    When we think about the law, we think of it as "what's" and "how's." But we often don't think about the "why's." In Deuteronomy 4, Moses gives a preamble to the Ten Commandments that helps us see why God wanted his people to obey. David and Seth dive deep into topics like the fear of God, evangelism and obedience, and why relationship is such a huge part of law code.
