Congealed Divine Oral Communication

Here’s a gem of a quote from a commentary that might not make it into a sermon, but needs to be shared and is too big for a tweet:

This written document represents not only a written transcript of Moses’ pastoral addresses but also congealed divine oral communication.  Since Yahweh’s voice is expressly identified with a written text, in the Torah of Moses Israelites of all generations have access to the divine voice.

Daniel I. Block, Deuteronomy, NIV Application Commentary (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2012), 699; commenting on Dt. 30:9-10.
