#8 Bible Overview

BOOK OF JOSHUA

 Quick overview of what we learned in Exodus:

God sent Moses to Egypt to rescue the Israelites from slavery.
God parted the Red Sea and the people walked on dry land to safety.
Twelve spies went into Canaan (the land God promised to the Israelites)
Joshua and Caleb (two of the spies) trusted God and wanted to conquer the land.
The other ten spies convinced the Israelites that the Canaanites were too powerful to
conquer.
God was angry at the people’s lack of belief, so instead of moving into the Promised
Land, the people wandered in the desert.
Even though the people disobeyed, God took care of them in the desert.
After 40 years of wandering, the generation that didn’t obey God died off. Now their
children and grandchildren were ready to conquer the land God promised to them.
Because of their trust in God, Joshua and Caleb were the only two people living from the older generation. God allowed them to enter the Promised Land.
PREPARING TO CONQUER THE LAND GOD PROMISED THE ISRAELITES.

Moses is dead, and Joshua is the Israelites’ new leader. God tells Joshua it is time to take the land promised to the Israelites. As long as they obey, God will not let them fail.

His mother saved him by planning a way that encouraged Pharaoh’s daughter to adopt Moses. So he grew up in the royal palace. When he was an adult he saw how terribly his birth people (Israelites) were treated and he killed a slave master for beating an Israelite. When Pharaoh found out that Moses had killed an Egyptian he wanted to kill Moses.

Exodus Chapters 1 – 14

Mystery, murder, and miracles make the book of Exodus exciting. In the beginning, we find the Hebrew people (descendants of Abraham) enslaved by the Egyptians. Why weren’t they in Canaan, where their ancestor Abraham settled? Just like many disasters, sin is at the root.  A quick review:
