In Deuteronomy, Moses repeats known facts of history in retrospect from a new angle. In contrast to the unaffected biblical narrator, a vulnerable human being takes the floor at the threshold of the Promised Land: Moses as an eye witness, who experiences for himself the consequences of the events he has been describing. This change of the point of view can only be adequately appreciated if Deuteronomy is interpreted consistently against the backdrop of the four preceding books of the Torah. Johannes Taschner shows how history is remembered in the speeches given by Moses and the significance of explaining history in order to understand the present.
