Search The Scriptures —Study 12 — Deuteronomy 14:15

Study 12 From The Book of Deuteronomy is: Deuteronomy 14:15


These two chapters contain laws concerning (a) funeral practices (14:1, 2); (b) clean and unclean foods (14:3-21); tithing (14:22-29); (d) the seventh year or year of release (15:1-18); (e) firstling males of the herd of flock (15:19-23).

1.      The principle underlying the laws of chapter 14 is that Christians are to behave differently from the world. What do we learn here concerning the Christians’ attitude (a) to death and bereavement (verses 1, 2; cf. 1 Thes. 4:13); (b) to food and bodily indulgence (verse 3-21; cf. 1: Cor. 6:12, 13; 10:23, 31); (c) to money and possessions (verses 22-28; cf. 1 Cor. 16:2)?
2.     What do the laws of chapter 15 teach concerning (a) redemption through Christ; (b) the Christian’s duty of putting the need of his brother before his own rights (cf. Mt. 5:38-42); (c) equality in the Church of God (cf. Acts 2: 44; 4:34; 2 Cor. 8:14)?
Notes
1.       14: 1b.  A reference to heathen mourning practices, signifying excessive grief.
2.      15:1. ‘Grant a release’: i.e., let the debtor off.
