About Deuteronomy 1:1-21:9 - 2nd Edition (Volume 06a) and Deuteronomy 21:10-34:12 (Volume 06b):
The book of Deuteronomy has been studied as a compilation of three sermons followed by three appendices. In this new study, Dr. Christensen posits, “Deuteronomy is best explained as a didactic poem, composed to be recited publicly to music in ancient Israel within a liturgical setting.” This allows the modern reader to observe the poetic and musical traditions of early Hebrew worshippers.
The revised edition of Volume 6A now includes commentary on the first part of Deuteronomy’s legal code (Deut. 12:1-21:9) and completely revises and updates the commentary on chapters 1-11 with discussion of the most current research. An innovative addition is this edition’s use of evidence from the synagogue’s traditional cycle of Torah readings to reveal the structure of the whole book of Deuteronomy. Other additions include the discussions of the practical implications of the historic Sinai covenant with its high moral standards for God’s people and the artistic and literary structures of Deuteronomy, stylistic forms not unlike those seen in ancient and modern epic poetry and music.
