Joshua 24 is the final chapter of the history of Israel’s conquest and
possession of the Promised Land under Joshua’s leadership. But it’s more than a
story of human conquest; it’s a story of God’s faithfulness to his Word to his
people. I think it’s important to do a quick recap of the entire book here
before we dive into this final chapter.
week in Joshua chapter 22 we witnessed Joshua sending the two and a half tribes
back over to the west side of the river with a command to love, obey, cling to
and serve God wholeheartedly. As these tribes settled in at home they built an
altar of remembrance out of their zealous desire to obey this command and
ensure that future generations knew about their commitment to the Lord.
