Deuteronomy 9 study guide: 9/10-9/16
Here's what we're reading at the church for the week...

It’s Not About You
Deuteronomy 9:1–29

Read 9:1–7
What words are used to describe the “Anakim”? Who defeats them? Why is this important?

In verses 4 and 5, what is the reason given for Israel inheriting this land?

Read 9:8–14
How would you characterize the speech of God in verses 12 thru 14? What does this say about God?

What part has being rebellious played in your own story as a Christian?

Read 9:15–24
How does Moses respond to God? How does he respond to the “rebellious people” around him?

Is there an application in this to Christians today? If so, what?

Read 9:25–29
How would you summarize Moses’ appeal in these verses?

Who is being asked to “remember” in verse 27?

Read Exodus 32 and Hebrews 12:18–24
How is Exodus 32 similar to Deuteronomy 9? How is it different? Why is this story significant at this point in Deuteronomy?

How does this passage in Hebrews relate to Deuteronomy 9? What does it say about God?

According to Hebrews, how is the experience of Christians, after the Resurrection of Jesus, different from the experience of the Jews at Sinai?

Read all of the passage 9:1–29
How many times are the words “rebel” or “rebellious” or similar words used in this chapter? What about “stubborn”?

What would you say this whole passage is about?

How does this chapter help us better understand what it means to love God with our whole heart?

Remember that chapters 4–11 in Deuteronomy are one continuous sermon. How does chapter 9 fit with what came before in chapters 4–8?

Sunday @ 10 a.m.
Join the discussion at the church downstairs.
