Joshua 5:13 - 6:27 A City Falls; A Sinner (and her family) Saved (March 11 2012)


With ritual obedience to the LORD's command, Jericho is destroyed. But in the context of judgment, grace: Rahab and her father's household are saved. Joshua learns that God guarantees neither complete salvation of Israel (as we see in Chapter 7) nor the complete destruction of Canaan; He is not a tribal deity, and will show mercy on those whom he will show mercy-even us.
