It doesn’t take a Bible scholar to figure out that Joshua is more interesting than certain parts of the Pentateuch and Joshua has certainly taken off in fine form. Spies enter Jericho before Israel plans to defeat the city and they are hidden by a woman who they promise to later allow to escape. The Jews cross another river that has been parted and leave twelve stones behind to represent the twelve tribes of Judah as a memorial to God. Joshua is also visited by a mysterious person who reveals themselves to be an angel of the Lord with a sword. Israel prepares to defeat Jericho and Jericho becomes disheartened when they hear about the great power of God.
