Deuteronomy 31.10, 11 – A nation-wide reading of the Law every seven years

Blessed and holy Israel would be, if they followed what Moses said about a public, nation-wide reading and hearing of the Law every seven years,

And Moses commanded them, saying: “At the end of every seven years, at the appointed time in the year of release, at the Feast of Tabernacles, when all Israel comes to appear before the Lord your God in the place which He chooses, you shall read this law before all Israel in their hearing” (Deuteronomy 31.10, 11).

How magnificent that must have been when they all came together to this manner and for this purpose!

Imagine a congregation coming together every seven years just to read the New Testament publicly without comments and interpretations, but just a simple and plain reading of the New Testament.
