Deut 066-slides

  1. 1. "God was also setting before them a theory of history that wasboth linear and progressive. They could extend the covenant overcenturies. . . .Israel’s future would not be cyclical. They would notinevitably lose whatever God had given them. . . .God was givingthem a crucial tool of dominion: long-term future orientation. Hewas giving them the psychological basis of an upper-classmentality: faith in the future. It is this mentality that provides menwith a way out of poverty. . . .Neither linear time nor the concept ofcompound growth was common in any other ancient society. Theconcept of cyclical time was all-pervasive in the ancient world.What God was telling Israel was that continuity through time isprovided by the covenant itself."Gary North, commentary on Deuteronomy
