Know Your Bible – January 28, 2015


Unique and Unusual

The New Testament quotes from Deuteronomy dozens of times, including three from the story of Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness in Matthew 4:1-11.  The Lord defeated Satan by restating Deuteronomy 8:3 (“Man shall not live by bread alone, but every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God”); 6:16 (“Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God”); and 6:13 (“Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve”).

The Ten Commandments, also found in Exodus 20, are restated in Deuteronomy 5.
