1.18 Division, Dan, and Refuge

Today’s podcast divides up the rest of the Promised Land amongstĀ the seven tribes of Israel who have not received land up to this point. We’ll find out which tribes got that primo real estate along the Mediterranean.

We’ll learn a little about Dan. Not Dan the Man, but Dan the tribe of Israel, and how he, or they, let that primo real estate slip from their grasp.

We then turn our attention to the cities of refuge. These were towns you could run to if you accidentally killed your friend before one of his relatives could kill you.

All that and more in today’s exciting installment of JoshuaJudgesRuth. Thank you for listening. Be strong and courageous. Have I not commanded you?

1.6 Israel Crosses the Jordan, with the Ark of the Covenant

In today’s episode Joshua and the Israelites cross the Jordan River. The Ark of the Covenant leads the way, carried by four priests. As soon as the Ark and the priests get to the river the water dries up and they cross over on dry ground.

How long would it take for 2 million people to cross the Jordan? You can find out by listening to today’s episode. We talk about Joshua chapters 3 and 4, and go over the background of the Ark of the Covenant itself.

Thank you for listening, and be strong and courageous. Have I not commanded you?
