Between the Gospel of Mark and the Gospel of Luke we enjoy one chapter of Proverbs and two chapters of Deuteronomy.
Proverbs 4: Wisdom is supreme and there is security in wisdom.
Deuteronomy 17. Anyone worshiping other Gods must have justice administered, including stoning. The Israelites will elect a King after they have entered the promised land. He must be an Israelite, not gathering riches or take many wives. He must read the scroll of the Law all the days of his life. As long as he does all these things he will reign a long time.
Deuteronomy 18, the LORD is the Inheritance for Priests and Levites. No Wicked Customs such as child sacrifice, “ or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer ” In other words: “Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.” Then the LORD gave a promise He will raise up a Prophet like Moses.
