Learn about the conquest of Canaan in this summary of the Bible story of Joshua and enter the promised land with the Israelites!
THE BOOK OF JOSHUA
Moses has died along with all of the original Israelites who left Egypt. The next generation has risen up with Joshua as their leader and God delivers them to Canaan–The Promised Land!
But there’s a catch…the land is inhabited by other kingdoms, which they will have to take over in order to claim their land. Will they trust God this time around?
As spies are sent in to Jericho, a prostitute named Rahab hides and protects them. She tells them that the people of Jericho have heard about the power of the Israelite God and are fearful. The spies promise to spare Rahab and her family when they overtake the city in return for her kindness.
But Jericho isn’t the only city they must defeat, it’s only the beginning. Chapter twelve lists 31 battles the Israelites fight to conquer Canaan. A few mishaps along the way give them some setbacks, but eventually God gives them victory and land assignments are given to the 12 tribes of Israel.
