Moses treats the text of Deuteronomy as not just a legal code, but instruction to be preached to Israel in order to be faithful to the Lord. Both the Ten Commandments and the various statutes and decrees are relevant to us today, and wisdom on how to obey God can be gained from studying them. God wants to be with His people, but as long as they exist in mortal flesh a mediator is required for His covenant. Moses was that mediator in the Old Testament, and Jesus Christ was in the New.
