Chapter Summary

This chapter proposes to look at the way in which the book of Deuteronomy sets forth the place and role of both inscripturated word and prophetic utterance. The author's Pentecostal perspective on Spirit and Word obviously parallels and is certainly informing his perceptions on the Deuteronomy passages. The two revelatory channels, those of canonical writing and charismatic speech, are both explicitly set forth in the book of Deuteronomy and projected forward into Israel's future life. By lifting up the unique phenomenon of Yahweh's nearness, Deuteronomy 4.7 not only points in the direction of prophetic utterance but also begins to illuminate its distinctive role in Israel's revelatory experience. The chapter summarizes that from the Horeb testimony of Deuteronomy 4-5, it is clear that Israel's having of a 'god so near' (as Yahweh is through his ongoing, dynamic prophetic utterance) is an urgent theological concern in Deuteronomy.

Keywords: ancient Israel; book of Deuteronomy; canonical word; Horeb testimony; Pentecostalism; prophetic utterance; Yahweh's revelation
