Today’s reading in the gospel of Luke is intriguing, read it carefully and ponder, then we finish up the last two chapters of Joshua.
Luke 18 starts by Jesus telling the parable of the persistent widow, meaning we should always pray, then he added: “When the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” After that he taught us humility with the parable of the pharisee and the tax collector, reinforced by Jesus blessing of little children. A rich young ruler wanted to inherit eternal life but was not willing to pay the price to follow Jesus. With men it is impossible to have eternal life , but all things are possible with God. Then Jesus predicted His death, and finally a blind beggar received his sight.
In Joshua 23 Joshua gave his farewell address.
Joshua 24. The Covenant was renewed at Shechem, at which time Joshua reto;d their history thus far, followed by the death of Joshua, and also the death of Eleazar, Aaron’s son.
