Joshua (Biblical book)

From A Storehouse of Knowledge
Jump to: navigation, search

The Book of Joshua is the sixth book of the Old Testament. Placed directly after the five books of the Pentateuch, Joshua continues the story of the Israelites after the death of Moses. Joshua takes command of the twelve tribes and leads them across the River Jordan to wage war on the tribesmen living in Canaan and finally take possession of the land promised by God to His chosen people.

The book ends with the death of Joshua, by which time the Israelites were firmly established in Canaan (modern-day Israel), although conflict with the Philistines and other tribes in the area continued intermittently as told in Judges and subsequent books.
