This week we cover Deuteronomy chapters 1-12. Moses gets nostalgic and retells the same stories from Exodus and Numbers, Yahweh commands the Israelites to love him (pretty sure that's not how love works), and Ashton can't help but do some more math. Most importantly, we'll discuss the historical context of Deuteronomy and what motivates the Deuteronomist to rewrite old myths.
