Welcome My Friends, and thank you all for returning, or for those who are 'new', thank you for joining our 'bible studying family' via the 'Internet'.
Thank you all and bless you all for continuing to have a 'heart' to study the Holy Bible with me and Jesus, through the enlightening by the Holy Spirit. [Psalms 37; 73; 119; John 14:26]audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html

Further Background, 'things to notice', with Outline - the 'Book of Joshua'
Post A, April 7, 2019; Post B-AM/PM, April 10, 2019
To keep the posts shorter this year, and yet, not to dis-connect the 'thoughts', I will generally post an am/pm series of posts, in some instances, [like today], so that you will have all the 'conversation' before we have the two-week time break before the next post..
So, thank you for returning today, April 10, 2019, as we continue our 'thoughts' outlining and getting a general understanding, not just about 'the book' of 'Joshua' in the Holy Bible; but equally important - 'the character' of the 'man' - 'Joshua'. 'Joshua, a man chosen by the Living God, to 'take the children of Israel', as He had promised - 'into the Promised Land'.
Continuing here in 'the Sanctuary Room' of 'my home in and with Jesus' we continue on a bi-monthly Sunday/Wednesday basis in which we will be focused over the next several months with studies in - 'The Book of Joshua'. We will not rush.
[** Please remember, we also 'study' the Holy Bible, 'book' by 'book' in the 'Bible Study Room' of 'my house in and with Jesus'. We have already studied Genesis and Exodus, during 2018, and are beginning to study Leviticus and afterwards, Numbers and Deuteronomy, as the Lord wills, during 2019. Do, check it out.]
The best way to 'know' the 'man' 'Joshua' is of course to study the Book of 'Joshua' in the Holy Bible, written by 'Joshua', under the Holy Spirit. We can therefore get to and answer such questions we need to answer. including 'Why is Joshua so important, at the time in past history? But then, What's the Bigger Point?'
Then, and most importantly for studying the Entire Holy Bible, it is understanding the principles we learn and how to apply them in our lives, under circumstances, for us, today, 'What is the Bigger Point?'.
We are to be asking, 'What have I learned, and, how do I apply this in my life of faith, today?'
Who is the 'Author' of the 'Book of Joshua'?
The book of Joshua does not specifically name its author. It has historically been held that Joshua himself was the writer of the book. Even if he did not write the book personally, he must have planned the writing of the book. Moses seems to be the author of Leviticus and Numbers, partially proven by the fact that the one to whom God spoke the words of the book was the one who wrote it (Numbers 1:1 and Deuteronomy 1:1). Using that pattern, it appears that Joshua was probably the author of the book of Joshua.
A few verses of the book are written after the death of Joshua. That section obviously had to be written by someone else. That “someone else” may have been Eleazar or Phinehas, Aaron’s son and grandson respectively. Whoever wrote the book (Joshua or another writer) was present at the crossing of the Jordan River into the Promised Land, based on the usage of the first person pronoun “we” in Joshua 5:1. He was an eye witness to the events as indicated by the wording of Joshua 6:25.
What is the Date of the Writing of the 'Book of Joshua'?
The history covered in the book is a time of 30 years. This was from the death of Moses in 1400 B.C. until the death of Joshua in 1370 B.C. Joshua was born about the time Moses fled from Egypt at the age of 40 (Joshua 14:7, 10 (speaking of Caleb)). Joshua died at the age of 110 (Joshua 24:29). Moses died at the age of 120, but 30 years previous to Joshua’s death. Joshua 'roamed the wilderness' from the time of leaving Egypt, to the time he was chosen by God, and led the children into the 'Promised Land'. [More biographical information on Joshua shall post in future posts.] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Please return for the afternoon post during which time we will answer such questions as 'What is the Date of the Writing of the Book of Joshua?'; What was the 'Purpose of the 'book of 'Joshua'?'; together with some 'Key Verses' and 'Key Words' to be found as you read and study 'the Book of Joshua.' Amen. Amen.
