Deuteronomy 16 is divided into two sections. In this lesson, Dr. Godfrey examines them to show their application to the Christian life. The first section considers the feasts of Israel, their history, and their purpose. The second section contains more laws about leadership that emphasize earlier themes of being a people set apart and free from idolatry.
Western culture glorifies individualism, such that the concept of belonging to and functioning in a community context, in many ways, has been lost. Is Christianity compatible with the idea of individualism? In this lesson, Dr. Ferguson shows from Scripture that Christ’s purpose is to build a community of worshipers who belong not only to Him but also to one another.
