Deuteronomy 8

  1. What threefold purpose did God have in leading Israel thorough the experiences of the wilderness?
    How did our apply verse 3b to his own case in matt. 4: 4?
    With verse 5 cf. also Heb. 12:7, 10, 11.
  2. In days of prosperity what subtle danger would beset them, and how were they to guard against it?
    Compare the advice that Barnabas gave to the church in Antioch (Acts 11:23b).
