Deuteronomy: The Formation of a Covenant Community

SERMON SERIES
JANUARY – JULY 2018

What makes a group of individuals into a community? Shared history, experiencing tragedy together, failure and triumph, a common place, agreed upon rules of conduct, common truth? In this book God shapes the nomadic people who fled from Egypt into a covenant community, using all those elements, making them ready for the final stage in their formation, the acquisition of a place of their own. From this book we learn today what it means to be shaped into a covenant community belonging to God in the midst of a hostile world.
