What do we learn from 24:17-23? Do you see any of our laws today based on this passage? Why/why not?
I believe that the seventh year of rest (no planting, harvesting, pruning, etc.) was to teach and point forward to Christ, our ultimate rest. And more so the fiftieth year after each “seventh Sabbath” of years, the Jubilee (chapter 25). As much as there is talked about the Jubilee within many churches, there is NO evidence that it was ever “obeyed” or practiced by the Jews. What lesson(s) do you think God wanted them to learn from the Jubilee?
Why would there be a difference between walled and unwalled cities/villages (25:29-31)?
Does 25:35-38 outlaw all loans at interest? Why/why not?
The laws of redemption (chapter 25) figure heavily in Jesus’ work in our behalf.
What implications does 26:1-13 have for America today? Why?
The voice of the Lord is prominent in the latter half of Psalm 28 also, and David tells what the Lord does (will do) for His people. What does “extol” mean (Psalm 30:1)?
