Richard Dawkins, for example, describes the book of Joshua as “a text remarkable for the bloodthirsty massacres it records and the xenophobic relish with which it does so,” while asserting at the same time, specifically with regard to Joshua’s conquest of Jericho, that “it didn’t happen.” 1 But this doesn’t make any sense.

People. The major action of the book of Joshua is Israel’s conquest of the land God had promised their ancestors (Joshuafollowing ). The land is the central stage upon which God’s drama with Israel is played out, and it rests at the core of God’s promises to the nation.

The Law of Moses itself is inextricably bound to the land. The basis of Joshua’s confidence and strength was God’s promised presence and power ().

But the key to Israel’s success in the Conquest, Joshua’s effective leadership, and God’s saving presence with His people would be Israel’s fidelity to the book of the law. It is relatively easy to date the start of the conquest of Canaan at the end of the Exodus in BC when Joshua crossed the Jordon River on Nisan 10 of that year, according to Joshua (See pages ).

It is also clear when the period of the Judges is over and King Saul begins his reign in June of BC on the Day calendar.

Robert M. Bowman, Jr. In a separate article, “Joshua’s Conquest: Did It Happen?”I have argued that we have some good reasons to accept the biblical account of the Israelites’ conquest of the land of Canaan under Joshua as historically grounded.

His name was Hoshea (הוֹשֵׁעַ) the son of Nun, of the tribe of Ephraim, but Moses called him. He has spent the bulk of his career wrestling with the book of Joshua, arguably the Bible’s most troubling book, with its account of the conquest of the land.

Hawk’s full-length commentary on the book, Joshua: Studies in Hebrew Narrative and Poetry (), is a model of close literary and theological exegesis. The book of Joshua details how the Israelites conquered Canaan, the Promised Land given to the Jews in God's covenant with 's a story of miracles, bloody battles, and dividing the land among the 12 tribes.

Characterized as a historical account, the book of Joshua tells how a leader's obedience to God resulted in divine help in the face of. However, the next book of the Bible opens “after the death of Joshua” (Judges ), and here is what it says about five of those six places.

After that, Judah went down to fight against the Canaanites living in the hill country, the Negev and the western foothills. The Book of Joshua in its entirety is a prophecy of the spiritual conquest of the world through Jesus the Messiah. The name Joshua is formed from the root of the Hebrew word for "salvation." In NehemiahJoshua is written as יֵשׁוּאַ or Yeshua, the name for Jesus.

The conquest of the Canaanites in the book of Joshua is among the most challenging passages in the Bible for modern readers.

Most readers imagine that God commissioned his nation to vengefully wipe out an entire nation of Canaanite men, women, and children. A comparison of Joshua with the account of Israel’s early history found in the first chapter of the Book of Judges shows that Israel’s emergence as the dominant presence in the land was a slow and piecemeal affair, not achieved at one stroke and with great ease: the Book of Joshua, with its highly idealized depiction of the “conquest.

The book can be divided into three sections: the conquest of Canaan (chapters 1–12), the distribution of the land among the Israelite tribes (chapters 13–22), and Joshua’s farewell address and death (chapters 23–24). Joshua is a story of conquest and fulfillment for the people of God. After many years of slavery in Egypt and 40 years in the desert, the Israelites were finally allowed to enter the land promised to.

One of the primary themes of the book of Joshua is “Be strong and of good courage” (Joshua ,9,18). While the book of Numbers shows that. After the death of Moses Joshua leads the Jewish people for 28 years. 2 The Book of Joshua describes the seven years of conquest and seven years of settlement of the Land of Israel.

After the land is conquered is divided into separate tribal portions via a divinely guided lottery. The Book of Joshua is the sixth book of the OT - the first of the Former Prophets (i.e., the historical books, which conclude with Nehemiah). In broad outline, the book tells of Israel's conquest.
