When we think about the law of the Old Testament, it's easy to think about the confusing details, specific demands and feel like God's law was oppressive. But when we study Deuteronomy, we discover that in his farewell speech to the Israelites Moses reviews the law and in process shows us that God's law is actually a beautiful gift. In this Groundwork series we study the book of Deuteronomy to uncover this beautiful gift and see how remembering God's law leads us to freedom and life.
