Deuteronomy 21 – The Prophet and Cities of Sanctuary
June 25, 2016
Deuteronomy foretells of a prophet and mediator between God and the Jewish people. This is seen as foretelling the ministry of Jesus Christ, through whom God reveals His love of mankind. Some guidance is given for how to distinguish real prophets from false ones. Rules carefully delineating manslaughter and murder are laid out. Despite the fact that we do not live in a theocracy, we should have a mind to purge evil from our midst.
