This study, taught by Pastor Barry Forder, is the 11th session of our through the Bible in a year series recorded during 2014 as part of our Sunday morning family services. This session is an overview of the book of Joshua, an interesting book for a number reasons, not least because it bears the name of our Saviour! (Joshua and Jesus are essentially the same in Hebrew – meaning ‘the LORD saves’).
Models abound, as it appears the book of Joshua has been intentionally designed to be a precursor to the book of Revelation, even though it was written over 1000 years earlier! In his excel book, Victorious Christian Living, Alan Redpath also shows the relevance of this book to Christian’s today, highlighting the parallels between the book of Joshua and the book of Ephesians.
Thematically it takes us from the wilderness wanderings to life in the Promised Land land of Canaan. There many lessons and blessing awaiting the diligent student.
May this overview prompt you to undertake your own study of this divinely inspired book!
