Suggested Discussion Questions:
This passage describes a complete and fulfilled life: land, food, abundance, God, gratitude, religious obligation, promise of a future. The “seven species” described in
the Deuteronomy text still grow in Israel today. To the ancients, they were emblematic of the bounty of the land. Do you think it is possible to achieve
these feelings of completeness outside of Israel? If so, where do you feel you could most meet all of your needs?
