9 attended EPICChurchTime this week. We continued our video project by filming the scene from Acts 16 where Paul and Silas sing praises to God while they are in Jail.
We are in session 6 of our series “Summary of the Bible”. This week, the topic was the book of Deuteronomy. We learned that Deuteronomy is the last of the books of Moses (aka the Law or the Pentateuch) and it summarizes events which took place in the previous four books.
The highlight of the discussion was about the symbolism behind the death of Moses. Moses died just on the border of the promised land, but God forbade him from entering it. Only Joshua, his successor, and the new generation of Israelites entered into the promised land. This is significant because Moses represents the law of the Sinaitic covenant, and following the law (or doing good works) will not allow you to enter into God’s rest (meaning salvation and Heaven). Only trusting in Jesus (whose Hebrew name was equivalent to Joshua’s Hebrew name) will do that.
