D e u t e r o n o m y.(*):.Written 1451 B.C.E. This book repeats much of the history and of the laws contained in the three foregoing books.
   It is known as the Book of the Law.

Moses delivered it to Israel a little before his death, both by word of mouth, that it might affect and by writing, that it might abide. 

The men of that generation to which the law was first given had all since passed on and a new generation had sprung up, to whom the Creator would have it repeated by Moses himself, who was still around, now that they were going to possess the land of Canaan.

Deuteronomy is an Old Testament book written to help one live in as high a consciousness back then as was possible. As one sees as he comes to understand the Old Testament, the higher consciousness than the ego level consciousness, was never attained. Today it is still used by a few churches who badly interpret it as a book to 'get one right with God' apart from the righteousness Christ came to reveal

Deuteronomy means the second law or a second statement, hence the name Deuteronomy. The book professes to have been written by Moses:.Deuteronomy 1:1; 29:1; etc. 

The book of Joshua consists chiefly of three discourses delivered by Moses a short time before his passing on. They were spoken to all Israel in the plains of Moab, in the eleventh month of the last year of their wanderings. 

The first discourse.(Deuteronomy chapters 1 to 4:40).recapitulates the chief events of the last forty years in the wilderness, with earnest exhortations to obedience to the divine ordinances and warnings against the danger of forsaking the God of their fathers.

The second discourse.(Deuteronomy chapters 5 to 26:19).is in effect the body of the whole book. It contains practically a recapitulation of the law already given by the Creator at Mount Sinai, together with many admonitions and injunctions.(commands; enjoining).as to the course of conduct they were to follow when they were settled in Canaan, the promised land. 

The concluding discourse.(Deuteronomy chapters 27-30).relates almost wholly to the solemn sanctions of the law, the blessings to the obedient and the curse that would fall on the rebellious. He solemnly.adjures them to adhere faithfully to the covenant.(an agreement).God had made with them and so secure for themselves and their posterity the promised blessings.

J o s h u a.(*):.Like the name 'Jesus', there was no letter 'J' till the 17th century A.D., so Joshua's name was actually 'Yehoshua'.

His name means 'Jehovah is his help' or 'Jehovah the Saviour'. Word 'Jehovah' original is 'Yahweh'. 

Written B.C.E. 1427, Joshua was the son of Nun, of the tribe of Ephraim, the successor of Moses as the leader of Israel. He became Moses' minister or servant and accompanied him part of the way when he ascended Mount Sinai. He was born a slave in Egypt and was about forty years old at the time of the Exodus.

Joshua was one of the men Moses sent to scout out the promised land:.Joshua 13:24. Joshua and Caleb were the only two of Moses generation to be allowed to go into the promised land.(Numbers 14:22,23), the land of Canaan:.Joshua 15:13.

Joshua has been regarded as a type of Christ:.Hebrews 4:8. Joshua brings only the younger people.(why only them?.Numbers 14:22,23; 32:11,12).of all that came out of a 400 year bondage in Egypt and brings the younger ones into the land of Canaan, where they were to inhabit what's called 'the Promised Land':.Numbers 13:25-28

As Joshua succeeded Moses, so the Gospel succeeds the Law.

Joshua carried on wars of conquest for many years, the record of which is in the book which bears his name. Six nations and thirty one kings were conquered by him, one being the famous walls of Jericho. Having thus subdued the Canaanites, Joshua divided the land among Israelites that were the younger of the tribes, the older ones having since passed on:.Joshua 18:1 to 21:40.

A place called Timnath-serah in Mount Ephraim was assigned to himself as his own inheritance.

His work being done, he passed on at the age of over one hundred and ten years. He was buried in his own city of Timnath-serah.
