observation re Josh 24:25-26 and probability that Joshua is author of Dt 25
'''Deuteronomy''' ([[Greek language|Greek]] for "the Second Law") is the fifth book of the [[Bible]] and is part of the [[Old Testament]]. It is also the fifth and final book in the [[Torah]], the theological mainstay of much of modern [[Judaism]]. It reiterates much of the narrative and rules discussed in [[Exodus]], [[Leviticus]], and [[Numbers]] as well as chronicling [[Moses]]'s death. [[Joshua]] is the next book in the Bible and picks up chronologically where Deuteronomy leaves off.
Deuteronomy was written by [[Moses]], except for the very end, which chronicles Moses's death and the events immediately thereafter. The authorship of this portion of the book is unknown.
