Yet More Footnote Three

The Creative Word: Canon as a Model for Biblical Education, Second Ed.,
Walter Brueggemann, Fortress Press, 2015, page 21

Brueggemann now finishes his quotation from Mchael Fishbane ...

"... The teaching of the fathers in Deuteronomy 6:20-25 is an attempt to involve their sons in the covenant community of the future, and undoubtedly reflects the sociological reality of the settlement in Canaan. The attempt by fathers to transform their uninvolved sons from 'distemporaries' to contemporaries, that is, time-life sharere, is an issue of supreme and recurrent significance in the Bible."

If it was important for them, in those days, how much more important is it for us in these days in which we now live!
