Preaching Joshua Today

John Stevens has given an extremely useful unpacking of Joshua, and some thoughts about how to preach it here. http://www.john-stevens.com/2016/09/expository-thoughts-what-can-we-learn.html

I particularly enjoyed his conclusion:

“The book of Joshua therefore teaches us that we need a greater “Joshua” who will be fully faithful to God, who will lead his people into their promised inheritance, but whose rule will not be brought to an end by death.  We can rejoice that in Jesus this “greater Joshua” has come, and that he will accomplish our salvation and bring us safely into our inheritance in his eternal kingdom.”
