Deuteronomy 31

1.What made it possible for Israel, and what makes it possible for us, to ‘Be strong and courageous’ and not to ‘be afraid or terrified’ even when great human leaders pass away?
See verse 1-8 and cf. Heb. 13:7,8.

2. In how many different ways did the Lord, through Moses, seek to safeguard Israel against the backsliding which he knew, nevertheless, would take place?
What alone can keep us steadfast?
Cf. 1 Pet. 1:5; Gal. 5:16. Cf. also Deut. 32:46,47.

3. How does this chapter emphasize the need for something beside the law of God to promote obedience?
Cf. Rom.8:3, 4; 2 Cor. 3:5,6.
