IV.
As you have spent time with this account you no doubt noticed the “big” and “loud” things as I did – the commander of the army of the Lord with a drawn sword, the people marching around Jericho, the blowing of the horns, the shout of the people, the rush of the people into the city. Maybe you even had in the mind (or even heard) the spiritual “Joshua fit the battle of Jericho.”

V.
Let’s go past those images and see what else we find here.

Pay attention to Joshua.

What do you notice about him?

What is he doing at the beginning of this account?

What does the commander of the army of the Lord tell him and what does he tell Joshua to do?

How does Joshua respond to this commander?

VI.
Spend time with Joshua.

What might we gain from his experience and his example?
