What do Commandments have to do with Eternal Life?

Professor Pinchas Shir joins me to talk about his course The First Commandment: Deuteronomy and the Gospels. We discuss if the 10 are "commandments", "words", or "categories" before diving into a conversation between an unnamed man and Jesus about how to achieve eternal life. What did "eternal life" even mean at that time?

Professor Shir has a great fondness for the book of Deuteronomy and its connections throughout the Bible. His course is a small taste of how influential Deuteronomy is in the theology portrayed in the gospels. Take the concept of "eternal life." Is this a heavenly life or a life full of God's blessing here on earth?
