In today’s episode we discuss the Cities of Refuge, and the importance of sacrifice and blood in the old testament. We also run through the land allotments to the Levites.
Most people think the distribution of the land in the book of Joshua is pretty dry, but we discuss how it really begins to put shape to the covenant God made with Abraham in Genesis, and how active faith played a huge role in the taking of the Holy Land.
In this episode we invite our very first guest to the show, and have a great discussion about wether or not the earth stood still for Joshua and the Israelites during the southern campaign of the taking of the Holy Land. We also spend some time discussing the idea of grace and mercy in the Old Testament, and how it doesn’t look like we think it should, but it’s there nonetheless.
Today we discuss the severity of sin, and how one man’s sin played a role in the loss, and then later victory in the battles of Ai in chapters 7 and 8 of the Book of Joshua.
As our journey through the book of Joshua continues, we find ourselves at the point of the story where the Israelites finally enter the holy land and take the city of Jericho. We spend a lot of time discussing the topic of Holy War, and what it really means.
On this episode of Going Deeper, we’re moving closer to entering the Promised Land in Joshua chapters 3-5. We discuss the use of rocks and altars in the Old Testament as a way of remembering, and how this relates to the altars and monuments we make for ourselves as ways of remembering important events in our lives.
On this episode of Going Deeper, we discuss tools we use to study and read scripture, the biblical character Rahab, and all the questions surrounding her and the agreement she made with a couple of Israelite spies.
