Discussion for Joshua 1

  • Mina
    I believe even though Moses was dead, God encourages Joshua that he was capable of leading israel as Moses did. The promise God promise Moses was still in effect, his word is faithful even when Joshua lead the people.

    To 'Malefu' on Joshua 1:8 -- And to think - they (or rather parents) were 'here' 40 yrs. ago, but only Joshua and Caleb had FAITH in God. And it was only 11 days journey from Mt. Horeb (Sinai) to the land of Canaan. Arrrrrrrrrrrg!!! They saw all the blessings of the Red Sea and Pharoah. I believe it wholeheartedly, but I'll never understand it.
  • Malefu
    Meditate on the Word of God. When you are rooted in the Word you can't be shaken. I love verse 8.

  • Coco T. Anne Strawbridge
    The "book of the law", vs. 8, was handwritten by Moses as instructed by God after God gave him the Ten Commandments. It contained extra counsel and instructions that the Israelites needed, based upon the Ten Commandments. This book was not the Ten Commandments and was kept in the side of the Ark of the Covenant.

    THIS was the law that was nailed to the cross, not the Ten Commandments.
