Abstract:

The book of Deuteronomy has been immensely influential, not least within the Old Testament itself. It is found among the most frequently occurring manuscripts at Qumran, and is one of the most referenced Old Testament books in the New Testament. In Matthew's Gospel, it is Deuteronomy which Jesus cites in rejecting temptation. As with many other Old Testament books, study of Deuteronomy is in the midst of change. While for many scholars the Deuteronomy Hypothesis has continued to provide a framework for interpretation, it no longer commands the status of an "assured result." Fresh approaches has been developed, engendering their own debates over the book's formation and distinctive theological themes. While exploring these and other facets, this volume bridges the gap between general introductions to Deuteronomy and specialized scholarly literature. Written by participants of the Tyndale Fellowship Old Testament Study Group, it offers insights of an international collection of Old Testament experts that will be valuable to students and scholars alike.
