Hong Kong is an iconic city bridging Western and Eastern culture. For 150 years it was under British rule, which sheltered it from the upheaval of China’s Communist revolution in the 1950s. In 1997, when the British ceded Hong Kong’s territory back to China, it was designated as a nearly autonomous region.
Deuteronomy is set east of the Jordan River on the plains of Moab, just outside the promised land (1:1). Here, the Israelites stood on the precipice of a new era. Behind them lay the exodus and the wilderness, where Israel experienced some of its highest highs and lowest lows. On the one hand, there was an awesome salvation from one of the greatest empires of the ancient Near East. On the other hand, there was failure so monumental that an entire generation was lost.
