History The story of Joshua and the conquest of the promised land covers a span of approximately forty years following the death of Moses, circa 1405–1365 B.C.

Joshua was commissioned to be Moses’ successor by God (Num. 27:18-23; Deut. 31:7, 14, 23) to bring into reality the covenant promise made to…
