WITH ALL YOUR HEART: Deuteronomy Reading Plan


This reading plan is aimed to help you see the heart of the book of Deuteronomy. Deuteronomy has much to say about the heart of God and the heart of man. Here are four questions to help you reflect on the Word.

  1. What does this passage teach about God?

  2. What does this passage teach about us?

  3. How will I obey this passage this week?

  4. How does this passage point to Jesus?


Part 1: Deuteronomy 1-4

Israel is on the brink of the Promised Land (again), so Moses reflects on the covenant with a new generation. We see that God’s relationship with Israel is all grace—past (ch. 1), present (ch. 2-3), and future (ch. 4). The purpose of the Law is for God’s people to show God’s glory by God’s grace to all the nations.

Part 2: Deuteronomy 5-11

The second section lays out (ch. 5) and expounds the 10 commandments (ch. 6-11). The essence of the Law is to love the Lord with all your heart. But to truly do that, Israel will need new hearts with the Law written in it.

Part 3: Deuteronomy 12-26

In this section, Moses gets specific about the Law’s stipulations. Israel’s way of life in the land is meant to reveal the life of God. God wants His people to show His heart to the nations in true worship, righteousness, and holiness.

Part 4: Deuteronomy 27-34

Deuteronomy closes with the official renewal of the covenant. Israel agrees to the terms for better (the blessings) or worse (the curses). Sadly, Deuteronomy itself assumes total failure and the curses of exile. As Moses dies, the Law still hasn’t been fulfilled. Who will finally love the Lord with all their heart?
