Deuteronomy 1:1-4:43. History

Moses has brought Israel back to the doorstep of their Promised Land, after 40 years in the wilderness. In his three final sermons, he urges Israel to live up to their calling as God’s people so that they enjoy God’s blessing in the Land. In this first sermon, Moses appeals to Israel’s history, and all that God has done for them to bring them to their current situation.
