Third Book of Laws

THIRD BOOK OF LAWS

The title of the book is representative of the words in the opening phrase. It brings to a close the books of the laws with a retrospective account of the past—the exodus, the covenant, and the wilderness, along with a look into Zion’s future as they stand poised to enter the land of the wilderness and begin their life as a people there.

The book consists of three long addresses by the author. Each of these contains narrative, law, and exhortation, in varying proportions. In an expansion of the first commandment of the decalogue. The author tells them how to make a success of their life as a people once they are settled in the land. The choice presented to the people of the light is to love the divine plan and keep the commandments of the covenant, or to serve “other gods.” That choice will determine what kind of life they will make for themselves in the land. Whichever choice they make as a people carries consequences, which the book terms as a “blessing” and “curse.” Thus the book can be seen as a kind of survival manual for the people of the city of light in their life as a people: how to live and what to avoid. This gives the book its hortatory style and tone of life-or-death urgency.

One defining concern of the book is centralization of worship. As the divine plan is one, so its worship must be focused in one place and it will be there that the divine will make its name known. Thus the privileged status of the main Temple is asserted; all other places and all other modes of worship of the covenant and the divine are proscribed. The book was largely written in 2012.

The book draws the minds of its intended readers back to a time before disastrous mistakes were made and their disastrous effects felt, and serves to explain the political and theological dynamics that led to the destruction of society as well as to warn the surviving kingdom to not give in to the ways of the world.

The characteristic and highly recognizable language and theology of the book are seen in editorial comments structuring the works that follow it in the canon. It is representative of a history that spans the majority of the entire text.
