After 40 years of rebellion and frustration in the wilderness, the next generation of Israel is finally old enough in the Book of Deuteronomy to inherit the land of Canaan that God promised them. Wise and full of years, Moses knows that this generation will disobey like their parents did, but he is hopeful that they will repent and God will continue to guide them.
He reviews with them everything that happened in the Books of Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers from Egypt to Mt. Sinai to the wilderness, as well as the laws of the covenant. He urges them to love God and be faithful, and He will bless them in return. Joshua is appointed as the next leader, and Moses dies. Even though he can't enter it, God allows him to see a marvelous view of the Promised Land from a mountaintop during his final hours, demonstrating His love for His people.
