Today we will read five chapters, the one chapter in Luke is important, but there is not one New Testament comment mentioned about the four chapters of Joshua, not even about Caleb! Read them as history and Geography and enjoy!
Luke 14, again on the Sabbath, at a Pharisee’s house no less, Jesus healed a man with dropsy. Noticing how the people competed for the best places Jesus spoke of the lowly place to be sought rather than the place of honor. Then he gave us the parable of the Great Supper and the cost of following Christ. Finally he mentioned the value of good salt and the worthlessness of salt that lost its savor.
Joshua 11 tells of the Northern Conquest and gives a summary of all the conquests.
Joshua 12 sums up the Kings conquered by Moses and the Kings conquered by Joshua.
Joshua 13 describes the land to be conquered; the land divided East of Jordan: The land of Reuben, the land of Gad and the land of Manasseh East of Jordan.
Joshua 14 describes the land Divided West of Jordan and that Caleb, still in his strength at the age of 85 wanted and inherited the hilly land of Hebron.
