The central theme of the book of Joshua is that God keeps his promises. Joshua records how God was true to his word in helping Israel take possession of the promised land. But God does not leave them to carry on in their own strength. Christians, like Joshua, are to be strong and courageous, no matter what we may face—we can be because God is faithful to his promises.

The fulfillment of God’s promises of a land are central to the book. He begins the book with it and brings to closure Joshua’s final charge to Israel’s leaders with it. And the promises of God as fulfilled are found throughout the book.

“He has equipped Israel to stand up to their enemies in three ways: firstly, God promises to be with Israel as they enter the land of Canaan; secondly, he raises strong leadership in the person of Joshua; and, thirdly, he gives the people his Word to stand on and to live by.” (Page 26)

“Secondly, God demands that Israel obey his Scriptures that he gave in the Torah. The people are about to enter a land full of wickedness and violence, and their primary safeguard against the ways and means of the ungodly is God’s Word.” (Page 25)

“Those who truly belong to God’s people—that is, those who have been redeemed by the blood of Christ—will inherit a land” (Page 18)

“In Hebrew culture the number seven often symbolizes completion or is a mark of an accomplished task.” (Page 83)

“it is not I ‘will’ give Jericho to you, but I ‘have’ given it to you. The conquest of the city is a done deal!” (Page 83)
