Though to some the book of Deuteronomy appears to be rather repetitive to a series of passages from Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers, still it is one of the greatest places in the Old Testament which reveals the faithfulness of God in the unfolding of His redemptive purposes that would culminate in the Person and work of Jesus Christ. Be prepared to meet Christ in Deuteronomy. You will be surprised to see how much this book speaks of Christ and the Gospel.

Henry Law, dean of Gloucester in the 18th century, drives us through The Gospel of Deuteronomy to help us see how the Word of God reveals, in a prophetic and typical manner, the plan of redemption made even before the creation of this Universe. And Christ is at the very epicenter of this.

Henry Law (1797-1884) was a British theologian and minister, most famous for his 5 volumes on how to discover Christ in the Pentateuch. He was also instrumental in the life and missionary labors of Hudson Taylor.

A prolific practical teacher of the Scripture, he who wrote The Gospel in the Pentateuch, commentaries on the Psalms and many other excellent works. One piece is a collection of family prayers to be used morning and evening, each day of the week in family worship. Over the next few weeks, I plan to share with you those prayers for your personal and family use-my own prayer is that they will be a help and an encouragement to you in your own walk with our Lord.

Here is a quote from Law’s work on Genesis: “For three days Abraham journeyed towards the appointed mount. This was large opportunity for unbelief to whisper many a dissuading thought. This was long time for the father’s heart to ache. He looks on his child, and there is agony. He looks up to his God, and the agony melts into the calmness of unruffled peace. He turns to his child, and his foot would sincerely falter. He turns to his God, and the step is firm in resolute resolve.. Behold God’s wondrous way. His word is honored. Faith triumphs, and is honored too. It is tried, and by the trial is confirmed and expanded. The patriarch now begins a new life of heavenly joy. For the joy of Isaac born is nothing to the joy of Isaac restored. A giving God was love in the highest. A restoring God is love in higher heights.”
