We noted in the first lesson of Deuteronomy that this book is Moses preaching a sermon to the people, explaining the law of the Lord. This book is teaching the people how to leave the wilderness and enter the promised land. The first chapter reminded the people what happened to their parents, the prior generation, why they fell in the wilderness and the lessons that were to be learned from that. Chapters 2-3 remind these people what they have seen in their lifetimes while in the wilderness. This recount of their history is a message of encouragement, with a call to action in chapter 4.
