Did you know you could read and study the Bible without using any chapters or verses? The books of the Bible are real "books." They're meant to be experienced the same way other books are: as exciting, interesting works that keep you turning pages right to the end and then make you want to go back and savor each part. The Understanding the Books of the Bible series of study guides will help you do that with the Bible. While you can use these guides with any version or translation, they're especially designed to be used with The Books of The Bible, an edition of the Scriptures from Biblica that takes out the chapter and verse numbers and presents the biblical books in their natural form.  Written with careful attention to the original language, historical setting and literary structure of each book, these guides are great for individual study, Sunday School classes, and small group Bible studies. They make a great next step for churches and other groups that have done a Community Bible Experience with Biblica.

From the Author:

Exploring Deuteronomy and Hebrews in a single study guide worked out better than I ever could have imagined.  I thought these two biblical books might go well together as records of public addresses to people living at similar strategic moments in the history of God's covenant dealings with humanity.  But when I got into a detailed examination of both books, I discovered more connections and continuities than I ever suspected were present.  I trust you'll be just as fascinated and inspired by the seamless thread of the unfolding relationship between God and humanity as you, too, study these books together.

From the Inside Flap:

God may do remarkable acts to bring one generation of humanity into a saving relationship with himself. But these acts will become just artifacts of history if the next generation doesn't respond to them and join in that relationship themselves, keeping the same opportunity alive for future generations as well.

The most important saving act of God recorded in the First Testament is the exodus, the deliverance of the people of Israel from slavery in Egypt. The most important saving act of God recorded in the New Testament--indeed, the culmination of the whole story in the Bible--is the incarnation, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Two biblical books are addressed to people living in the generations right after each of these events, calling them to embrace in their own day, and for the sake of future generations, the salvation that God has inaugurated through these acts.

Deuteronomy speaks to people who lived one generation after the exodus. Hebrews speaks to people who lived one generation after Jesus. Both books stress that God's redemptive acts were not just for those who were alive when they happened; rather, these acts present every generation with a call to decision and an invitation to relationship. In Deuteronomy Moses tells the children of the Israelites who came out of Egypt, "It was not only with our parents that the LORD made this covenant, but with us, with all of us who are alive here today." The author of Hebrews similarly urges his listeners, "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts," insisting that the same opportunity that people had in the past to embrace God "still remains."

Both books invite their audiences to become part of a new covenant, a new way in which God's ongoing relationship with the community of faith will be expressed. Deuteronomy invites the Israelites of the wilderness generation, whose nation had long related to God under the covenant made centuries before with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to embrace the covenant God had just made in the previous generation with Moses. Hebrews invites first-century Jewish believers in Jesus to recognize that through him God had established a long-promised new kind of covenant, in which the spiritual realities behind the physical features of the covenant with Moses become directly accessible, dissolving the earlier covenant itself in their heavenly glory.

Both books are written records of public addresses. Deuteronomy records a long speech that Moses gave to the people of Israel just before he died. Hebrews is a collection of messages (sermons) that its unknown author gave in worship gatherings of Jesus' followers. These are the only two books in the Bible that are made up essentially of speeches. This form is vital to their purpose of urging and persuading their listeners to embrace the saving acts the previous generation witnessed in order to keep these works of God alive for future generations.

As these books show us, when it comes to experiencing and embracing God's saving acts, it's always today. It's today for you at this moment. Will you hear God's voice? Get together with a group of friends to read and discuss Deuteronomy and Hebrews with the help of this guide. The future depends on what you decide now.

Book Description InterVarsity Press, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. At first glance, Deuteronomy and Hebrews might seem very different from each other. In actuality, however, they re quite similar. Both are records of public addresses delivered at particularly pivotal times in the history of God and his people. Deuteronomy speaks to those living a generation after the most significant saving work of God in the Old Testament: the exodus. Hebrews speaks to those living a generation after the most significant saving work of God ever: the incarnation, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Both acts of salvation changed the relationship between God and humanity in dramatic ways and provided a new picture of the depths of God s power and love for the people he chose as his own. Deuteronomy and Hebrews, then, are both a call to embrace the new gift of salvation God has given and the new type of relationship God has made possible between himself and sinful humans. God s great work of salvation in Jesus Christ continues today. These studies not only help us make sense of Deuteronomy and Hebrews but also hold out the same invitation these two books of Scripture extended to God s people generations ago: Accept God s saving acts. Come closer and closer to him. And embrace his continuing work of forming us into a people who make his name known through all generations. The Understanding the Books of the Bible series moves groups away from a typical Bible study format into a new approach to experiencing the Bible together. Instead of following artificial chapter and verse divisions, these study guides lead groups through whole books following their natural outlines and flow. They pose engaging questions for discussion with personal implications all along the way, leading to a community Bible experience. Seller Inventory # AA79780830858156
