Wesley's Notes for Joshua 1:16

    I was a young woman of of 17 when I read the book of Joshua. As I read of this leader/trogon, he reminder me of my grandfather. I told him if I had a son I would name him- first name Joshua and second name after him because I could see Joshua in my grandfather, who's name was Slavone (French). Thus, Joshua Slavone. Family tells me he is so much like him. He was an officer and now a lawyer.

    I also believe that the lord was telling Joshua that the same miracles that he work in the presence of Moses that he would also work for him. Example, the children of Israel crossed the Jordan River on dry land (the children of Israel crossed the over the Red Sea on dry land),. Joshua came into the very presence of the lord, (man standing afar off with the sword in his hand).
