TOTC 06: Joshua

The book of Joshua memorializes a transitional episode in Israel's national
history. The heroic figure Joshua, imbued with strength, courage and faith,
leads the new generation of Israel across the Jordan and into the land of
promise, conquering Canaanites and overseeing the allotment of the inheritance
among the tribes.
But the book of Joshua is foremost a story of God, who works powerfully on
behalf of Israel and Joshua, fulfilling his covenant promises. It is God who
leads Israel across the Jordan, God who defeats Israel's enemies and God who
presides over the apportionment of the land. And so in the final chapter it is
God who receives Israel's worshipful recommitment at Shechem.

historical, theological and literary dimensions of the book of Joshua. An

millennium B.C.
