    Joshua 1-9 Analysis

    • 7 Pages

    is also a great promise for those who heed the Word of the Lord: success, prosperity and the peace and presence of God Himself. The charge placed upon Joshua and the encouragement that lies within the opening verses carry a similar meaning for believers today. 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. These dates are derived from 1 Kings 6:1 that states King Solomon’s fourth year of reign coincided with Israel’s departure from Egypt that occurred 480 years prior. When the forty years of wandering in the wilderness are factored in, the approximate arrival to Jordan and the death of Moses occurs around 1405 B.C. Deuteronomy chapter thirty-four and Joshua chapter one signifies a period of transition for Israel. Moses, Israel’s leader and representative before God since the exodus, is now deceased resulting in a crucial vacancy in Israel’s leadership. Prior to his death, Moses had been forbidden to enter into the promised land due to disobedience toward God (Num. 20:8-12). His failure to honor God before the people necessitated a replacement to lead them into the promised land. Israel required a leader who would lean solely upon God’s authority and yield completely in obedience . This replacement was found in Joshua. 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…

    The books of Exodus and Deuteronomy are important additions to the Bible after reading about the account of Adam and Eve, and about Noah and the flood. Sin entered the world and mankind was no longer in fellowship or relationship with God. God is holy and cannot exist with sin, and man is sinful to the core. In Exodus God shows Himself to be faithful. He also shows that He has a plan and He is perfectly able to see it through. He chose His people, the Israelites, and through many miracles,…

    6-8 in the book of Deuteronomy is based on God and his words to the people. The people of Israel were enslaved in Egypt, until God freed them and led them into a different land, the Promised Land. After freeing his people, he preaches to them the commandments that he expects them to follow. He lists all of the rules he wants them to abide by such as to remain loyal to God and do not test him. In Deuteronomy 6:20-25, God also tells his people to tell their children of the story how God freed them…

    result I could never give a proper summary. However, my attitude on reading first started to change in middle school and once I got to high school I learned how to deeply analyze a book. Learning how to pick apart a novel gave me a whole new insight on the importance of novels and what type of knowledge those novels could give me. For example, I didn’t realize that stories had symbolism and held deeper meaning that could reveal truths about human nature. This opened my mind and gave me a new…

The next morning, as soon as the little girl got up, she wrote down what she remembered of the dream, and titled the printer-paper booklet 'Rodot Lizard '. This would be her first of many small, sloppy stories. If you look back at that story, it seems…
