Dəḇārīm, ‘[the] words [of Moses]’

The Book of Deuteronomy is an exceptionally inspiring piece of literature that showcases the powerful speeches delivered by Moses. From start to finish, Moses is the primary author who penned the majority of the content with tremendous skill. At the end of the book, we witness his death, which implies that another author may have contributed to the writing of the remainder of the book. Many believe that Joshua took over the task, adding even more significance to the text’s timeless message.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding its authorship, the Book of Deuteronomy remains a crucial resource for anyone interested in the history of Judaism or the Mosaic tradition. The valuable insights and teachings contained within this text continue to inspire people to this very day. So let Deuteronomy be a beacon of inspiration to us all as we follow in the footsteps of one of the most significant figures in biblical history – Moses.
