The Last Words of Moses by Mic­ah Good­man

Translator: Ilana Kur­shan

The book of Deuteronomy is the fifth and final book of the Torah, and the Torah – according to Jewish tradition – is divine. The book of Deuteronomy, however, presents itself as a human document. Most of the book is comprised of three addresses which complement one another, all delivered by Moses. Moses speaks in first person. He tells the nation its story through the lens of his own personal perspective. Up until the book of Deuteronomy, Moses is a hero of the Torah. In the final book, he becomes a narrator.
