Explore the Bible: Joshua Bible Study Book is a six-session study that will encourage you and your group members to trust in God and have faith in His promises.
The Book of Joshua illustrates the fact that the Lord gives rest to His people. After the Hebrew people had suffered for four hundred years as slaves in Egypt, God gave them victories in the promised land. But each victory required a step of faith. God’s provision for the people bore witness to later generations of His divinely willed leadership for Israel, and His gracious gift of the promised land demonstrated that the people’s faithful obedience to the covenant could result in abundant blessing.
