Theme: Possessing Our Inheritance
- The name of Moses appears fifty-seven times in the book of Joshua, showing that even though Moses had died, his words and works had not been forgotten.
- The book of Joshua begins and ends with death (1:1; 24:33).
- The message of Joshua is to the Old Testament what the message of Ephesians is to the New Testament: possessing our inheritance.
- In Joshua 6:26, a remarkable threefold prophecy is made about the city of Jericho, which was fulfilled some five hundred years later (1 Kings 16:34).
- The great event in Moses’s life was the passage through the Red Sea, and the great event in Joshua’s life was the passage through the Jordan River.
- In Joshua, we read of four incredible miracles that took place: the crossing of the Jordan, the fall of Jericho, the “selective” hailstones, and the sun standing still.
- Rahab, whose story is recorded in chapters 2 and 6, is the first known Gentile who was converted under Mosaic Law.
- The word land is used over eighty-five times in this book, while the words inheritance and inherit appear over sixty times, emphasizing Israel’s possession of the Promised Land.
- Joshua refers to nine memorials of stones or altars to commemorate important events.
- Joshua is the third of only three books in Scripture that begin by stating that God is speaking (see also: Leviticus; Numbers).
- Joshua is the first book of the Bible named after its main character. Joshua records one of the best-known and best-loved Bible stories: the fall of Jericho.
The book of Joshua records one of the most interesting and important portions of Israel’s history. It is the capstone to the books of Moses, the foundation of those which follow. Omit Joshua, and there is a gap left in the sacred history which nothing could supply. — A. W. Pink
As I have studied Joshua, I have become convinced that this is a message very much needed in our time. We have many professing Christians in our day . . . but we do not seem to have many Joshuas. We do not have many who, without trying to be novel or spectacular, determine to obey the law of God in every particular and then actually do obey it throughout a lifetime of faithful service. —James Montgomery Boice
I think the church needs the message of the book of Joshua more than ever before. . . . The book of Joshua tells us how to be victorious soldiers and how to claim our rich spiritual inheritance in Jesus Christ. It tells us how to be strong and courageous as we face our enemies and march forward to claim new territory for the Lord. —Warren W. Wiersbe
