Today’s passage: Joshua 13:1-33
- After all of the victories of the previous chapters, we see there is much to be done.
- Joshua is older. His final task would be to communicate to Israel their allotted lands.
- There is more land to possess.
- There are people who have not been driven out.
- The Lord now begins to parcel out and give the land. First to those who would settle east of the Jordan River
Questions to consider:
- Why is it right that God would be giving the land for certain tribes of the Israelites to settle and dwell within? Whose land has it been all this time (Since creation…)?
- In what way is the Lord an inheritance for the Levites? Was their inheritance better than the rest if the tribes? And if so, in what ways?
- How does the idea of the Lord being inheritance inform passages like 1 Corinthians 9:13-14 and Philippians 3?
