    The book of Deuteronomy sets before God's people blessings and curses based on their obedience or disobedience. However, the curses seem to be stated in such a way that they seem inevitable. That is because the people of Israel needed new hearts if they were going to obey God and stay in the land. In this episode, Seth and David talk about curses, blessings, exile, and the New Covenant. Let's go!

    Just looking at the subheadings for this section in your Bible can seem daunting, confusing, and frustrating. Why are so many laws, covering so many different topics shoved together in this section? Seth and David offer several explanations for why this mishmash of laws exists and how we can worship Jesus in them.

    One of the most difficult questions about the Bible facing people today has to do with God's commands in these chapters to put everything that breathes to death. In this episode, Seth and David talk about how God's commands for cities of refuge, innocent blood, and credible witnesses help answer these very difficult questions.

    This section talks a lot about the rulers and decision makers in Israel's society: judges, kings, and prophets. But there are so many ways that Israel's authority figures were to be different from the nation's. They were arbiter's between God's law and man. David and Seth dive deep into these different societal and governmental roles and also relish in the ways that Jesus is the final and perfect judge, king, and prophet.

    Every seven years, God commanded a year of rest for the people and their land. This was called the Sabbatical Year. In this year, debts were forgiven, slaves were released, and property was returned. Seth and David talk about the social implications of this Sabbath year, as well as the way Jesus has brought a fuller and more perfect Sabbath Year to his people and the world.

    In this episode, David and Seth talk about tithing, kosher laws, and the death penalty.
