Joshua's Transition

Satisfactory Essays
Joshua brings the transition from experience of covenant curse to experience of covenant obedience and renewal. In several ways, then Joshua marks a transition. The transitions lead to a unique place in Israel’s literature, history, and theology. Theologically, the Book of Joshua features the leader never punished for serious personal sin; the loyal people who realize their objective and experience divine blessing; the land given, conquered, distributed, settled, incomplete, and threatened; the law to be read, meditated on, and eventually added to; and especially the Lord who stands behind all that Israel experiences.
