1.9 Sin in the Camp – Achan Messes Up Big Time

In today’s episode we discover who took the proscribed things from Jericho and what Joshua did as a result. We also learn that it was hard to be related to someone who broke a commandment.

Did the Israelites come up with a story to explain how the Valley of Achor got its name, or did an actual event lead to the naming of the valley? At any rate, Achan had his share of troubles, and getting stoned wasn’t the least of them.

1.8 And the Walls…Come Tumblin’ Down

Thank you for listening, and reading, because that’s what you’re doing right now, reading. Or maybe you hit the play button above and now you’re listening and reading. Either way, thank you!

Today we’re looking at Joshua chapter six. This is the chapter that details how the Israelites brought down the walls of Jericho. Before we get there I talk about why the Israelites are sent to drive out the Canaanites in the first place. I then go through the narrative of chapter six, and wrap up with just a little information about the archeology of Jericho.

Again, thank you for listening. I hop you enjoy. And remember, be strong and courageous. Have I not commanded you?
