Our study brings us to the book of Joshua as we have followed the people of Israel from Egypt to the border of the promised land. We have been noticing in our studies that the books of Exodus through Deuteronomy are not merely history books. Rather, these are books given to us by God so that we will see how God is going to save the world. These books are pictures of our redemption. In the book of Exodus we saw that God is going to raise up a deliverer who will crush the enemy and set us free from our slavery. In the book of Leviticus we learned that if we are going to be God’s people then we must be a holy people, devoted to the Lord. In the book of Numbers we learned that as we travel in the wilderness to the promised land we must not rebel or we will come up short. No one who rebels, not even Moses, will enter God’s promises. In the book of Deuteronomy we learned that to enter the promised land you must have a heart that desires God, desires God’s law, and understands that God is the reason why we can enter. God wants understanding hearts that truly see.
