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.

Study the Book of Deuteronomy with this Printable

Learn about the final speeches of Moses in the book of Deuteronomy and find out who replaces him as leader in this visual printable.

THE BOOK OF DEUTERONOMY

Whew! We made it. Out of Egypt, through the desert, and I can see a glimpse of the Promised Land. Oh wait…there’s that thing about not being able to enter it…

The book of Deuteronomy is Moses’ final farewell to the Israelites. It’s been 40 years since they escaped from Egypt and he knows he’s about to die. Generations have passed and a new one has sprung up. Only Joshua and Caleb will enter the Promised Land out of all the Israelites who left Egypt.

Moses is allowed a glimpse into Canaan, but dies before he can enter.

In these final 3 speeches, he addresses the crowds and reminds them of what God has done, the laws they must follow, the renewal of their ancestors’ covenant, and a few personal parting words.

Moses passes his leadership onto Joshua and the book ends with an account of Moses’ death and hope for the next chapter in the Israelites’ lives.

Study the Book of Numbers with this Printable

Learn about the rebellion of the Israelites in the book of Numbers and its lead-up to entering the Promised Land in this visual printable.

THE BOOK OF NUMBERS

While the book of Numbers is named so because of the census recordings taken place among the Israelites, the majority of the book is focused on the people’s rebellion.

The journey out of Egypt was meant to lead them directly to the Promised Land (Canaan), but through their continued disobedience, the Israelites are punished with 40 years of wandering the desert instead.

Numbers is a continuation of the story of Exodus, the laws of Leviticus, and a segway into the book of Deuteronomy.

Before this printable study, I found myself skipping over the book of Numbers. But after reading through this detailed book in the context of the previous three, I found myself really enjoying it!

GIVE ME THE FACTS

The overall story is that 12 spies (1 from each tribe) explore Canaan for 40 days and report back on what they found. God told them that this was the land he would give them, but when they returned, their report was less than comforting.

10 of the spies said that it was not safe, while 2 spies (Joshua and Caleb) said that despite what they saw, the land was wonderful and to trust the Lord.

The people rebelled against the Lord and he punished them with 40 more years of wandering the desert and no hope of conquering Canaan in their lifetime. Only Caleb, Joshua and the Israelite descendants would make it there.

Apparently Moses was still included in this promise, but later he disobeys God’s orders and is himself banned from entering the Promised Land as well.

In the middle of these events are a few side stories you should notice, such as:

  • Men being “swallowed” up by the earth because of their rebellion (Chapter 16)
  • The Israelites are bitten by snakes and look at a bronze snake statue for healing (Chapter 21)
  • Moses’ sister Miriam is afflicted with leprosy because of her jealousy (Chapter 12)
  • Special Nazarite vow guidelines later taken by the prophet Samuel and judge Samson (Chapter 6)
  • Balaam and his talking donkey (Chapters 22-24)
  • The first account of women acquiring land (Chapters 27, 36)

Don’t overlook this important book in the Old Testament! There is growth, forgiveness and justice all throughout it. For help understanding the basics, use this Numbers printable to help you organize your thoughts as you go:
