Old Testament: Deuteronomy 26:1-11 (Lent 1: Series C)

. A possible preaching point is the reversal we see in the life of Christ. In the Deuteronomy passage the people are given instructions on how to give offerings when they are led out of the wilderness into the Promised Land of Canaan. In the Luke passage, Jesus leaves the Promised Land to go out into the wilderness as the Sin-bearer to take our sins back to Satan (and then to the cross). God gives great blessings to His people, but only through the One who is a substitute in our place, His Son.

Old Testament: Deuteronomy 34:1-12 (Transfiguration: Series C)

Joshua takes over the role as leader of Israel, but he is seen as Moses Himself in the words; “So the people of Israel obeyed him and did as the LORD commanded Moses” (v. 9). This transfer of leadership took place earlier with instructions from the LORD. Later, the LORD God shows His favor and presence with Joshua in the parting of the Jordan and other signs which suggest Joshua is the new Moses… but he is not!
