Bible Survey Joshua
  • Theme
  • The Firstfruits of the Promise

God had promised Abraham that his descendents
would inherit the land of Canaan. This promise
begins to be fulfilled in the book of Joshua, but
only begins. I say that the theme is the
firstfruits of the promise, because the people of
Israel do not possess the land entirely, but only
begin to take possession of it. They receive the
land, but it is theirs to subdue.
Bible Survey Joshua
  • Purpose of Writing
  • Perhaps the most significant lesson of the book
    of Joshua is that victory is only possible
    through total obedience and faith in the Lord.
    Joshua details the victorious side of the Canaan
    campaign, where Israel was obedient and faithful
    to the Lord under the direction of Joshua, while
    Judges details the defeats of Israel as a result
    of their disobedience to the Lord after Joshuas

  • Joshua 513-15 Now it came about when Joshua
    was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and
    looked, and behold, a man was standing opposite
    him with his sword drawn in his hand, and Joshua
    went to him and said to him, "Are you for us or
    for our adversaries?" 14 He said, "No rather I
    indeed come now as captain of the host of the
    LORD." And Joshua fell on his face to the earth,
    and bowed down, and said to him, "What has my
    lord to say to his servant?" 15 The captain of
    the LORD'S host said to Joshua, "Remove your
    sandals from your feet, for the place where you
    are standing is holy." And Joshua did so.

  • The Scarlet Cord

Joshua 218-21 when we come into the land, you
tie this cord of scarlet thread in the window
through which you let us down, and gather to
yourself into the house your father and your
mother and your brothers and all your father's
household. 19 "It shall come about that anyone
who goes out of the doors of your house into the
street, his blood shall be on his own head, and
we shall be free but anyone who is with you in
the house, his blood shall be on our head if a
hand is laid on him. 21 She said, "According
to your words, so be it." So she sent them away,
and they departed and she tied the scarlet cord
in the window.

Bible Survey Joshua
  • Place in the Canon
  • Joshua is at once uplifting and poignant. It is
    uplifting in that tells us the story of Israel,
    Gods people, finally coming into their own.
    Israel has finally grown up and taken possession
    of the land which is hers by divine right. It is
    also poignant because we know the rest of the
    story. We know how she failed to fulfill her
    mission to drive out the inhabitants of the land
    and how that eventually led to her downfall into
    idolatry. The book of Joshua ultimately serves
    as a vital link between the nomadic Israel of the
    Patriarchs and the settled Israel of the Judges
    and ultimately of the monarchy of the Davidic
    line. In this way it also points to the ultimate
    Monarchy, ruled by the ultimate Davidic King,
    Jesus Christ.
