Further Background, 'things to notice', with Outline - the 'Book of Joshua'
Post A, April 7, 2019; Post B, April 10, 2019
Who wrote the book?
What time was the Book of Joshua written?
Bible Study: Joshua – Summary of the Book of Joshua audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Joshua chronologically follows the book of Deuteronomy. In the English Bible it also follows Deuteronomy in order. About 30 years of time are covered in the book of Joshua from 1400 to 1370 B.C. The title of the book comes from the main character, Joshua.
Joshua is a book of history. The first five books of the Bible covered quite a bit of history as well, but their prime focus was on the Law.
Joshua is the first of the 12 historical books: Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther. In passing, we will eventually study all of these books of the Holy Bible, as the Lord wills. [SMQ]
Like the other historical books, the recipients of this book are not specifically named. And yet, the Lord is 'speaking' to the 'seed of Abraham', as He is performing what He had promised Abraham. [Genesis 12], and, working towards the day of 'the coming of the Seed of the Woman. [Genesis 3:15]
Thus, we see that all the books are about God’s dealing with His people.
It can be assumed that the book was written as a reminder to future generations of how God worked in the past. This includes those of us, today. Throughout the Bible, God commands the people to build altars of remembrance. These altars helped one generation teach the next generation about God. This book (as well as the other historical books) serves as an altar of remembrance today, for you, for me.
As it is written at such as Romans 13:12; 15:4; 1 Corinthians 10:11; Philippians 3:17; 2 Timothy 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:20,21; 2:5-7, as follows. we know this to be true. Let the 'Written Word of God' speak personally - to YOU.
We know that this is very important for it is written, to wit:
'12 The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.' Romans 13:12, King James Version (KJV). And further:
“For whatsoever things were written afore times were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.” Romans 15:4, King James Version (KJV). And further we know that:
"11 Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. 12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry. 15 I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say." 1 Corinthians 10:11-15 King James Version (KJV). And further:
'17 Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do.' [Philippians 3:17, King James Version [KJV]. And further:
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.”. 2 Timothy 3:16,17 King James Version (KJV). And further:
'20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 1:20,21, King James Version [KJV], And further:
' 5.And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:' 2 Peter 3:5-7, King James Version [KJV]. Let the 'Word of God' speak to your heart.
Enjoy being in the 'Presence of the Lord', studying His Word for yourselves. On our next post on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, more in this our 'general' post series will be posted for our studies in - 'The Book of Joshua'.
Let us see 'lessons' on 'the prepared character' of a man used mightily by the Lord. He wants to use each of His children, in the same way! Amen. Amen.
