Abstract:

For a generation the question of the purpose of Deuteronomy has been chose jugee. The book has been regarded as the programme put forward by the religious leaders who, at the time of Josiah's reform in 621, succeeded in making a momentous change in Israel's worship. They centralised the worship of the nation at the temple in Jerusalem and brought it about that from this period sacrifices, offered at any other shrine or by the hands of other priests than those of the Aaronic priesthood, became ipso facto illegitimate. The chief means by which they effected this was the production of a Book of the Covenant which they had found in the temple. Certain features in the reform, which need not be detailed here, seemed to serve to identify this Book of the Covenant with our Book of Deuteronomy. Hence the Deuteronomic Code was regarded as being essentially the programme of the reformers. - p. 9.
