Today’s reading starts with one well known chapter of Luke and three chapters of Joshua. Enjoy!
In Luke 10 Jesus did send out the seventy-two, they returned with joy but Jesus admonishes them: “rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” He then told the Parable of the Good Samaritan and finally Jesus went to the home of Martha and Mary. Martha was busy but Mary just sat there and listened to Jesus.
Joshua 4, after crossing the Jordan Joshua commanded they take twelve stones as Memorial Stones to remind the Israelites they crossed Jordan on dry ground. (When the Levites went out of the Jordan River with the Ark the waters returned to flood stage.)
Joshua 5, while camped at Gilgal the second generation was circumcised. Joshua met the Commander of the Army of the LORD.
Joshua 6 describes in living detail The Fall of Jericho. (One of the many renditions is with the Delta Rhythm Boys.) Enjoy!
