The apostle Paul refers to Deuteronomy 25:4 in 1 Corinthians 9:9 and 1 Timothy 5:18. He makes the point that a minister of the gospel should be allowed to live from his work. This essay focuses on the meaning of Deuteronomy 25:4 in its literary context to establish if Paul is reading this verse as the author of Deuteronomy intended it.
