Today’s chapter of Luke is a must read for any believer, but there is not one New Testament comment in the three chapters of Joshua. Read them as history and Geography and enjoy!
April 5: Luke 15, Joshua 15, Joshua 16, Joshua 17 (click on the chapter to begin reading)
Luke 15 is deceptively simple. Just three parables, the lost sheep, the lost coin, and finally the lost son, the most famous story of redemption of them all.
Joshua 15, more geography: the land of Judah, Caleb occupies Hebron and Debir and a listing of the cities of Judah.
Joshua 16 describes the land that belongs to the half tribe of Manasseh, west of Jordan, and also the land of Ephraim.
Joshua 17 describes in more detail what is named in previous chapter.
Luke 10, Jesus sends out the seventy-two, they return with joy, the Parable of the Good Samaritan, with Martha and Mary.
This is just to show that with languages and translations you can sometimes draw conclusions that probably are not correct.
