IF:EQUIP “Study the Life of Joshua”

I would like to invite anyone who may be interested to drop by the IF:EQUIP website today for the start of a new (3-week-long) Bible Study, “Study the Life of Joshua.”

“We are excited to begin wrestling through unbelief and will fight for a deeper faith in God.” -Jennie Allen & The IF:Gathering Team

Notes from the IF:EQUIP Blog to get you started in the study (visit IF:EQUIP to participate):

Background on Joshua:

  • Joshua’s story starts in Numbers & ends in the book of Joshua

  • Took place between 1530-1420 B.C.

  • His name means ‘a Savior’ or ‘a deliverer’

  • He is the son of Nun, of the tribe of Ephraim, the successor of Moses as the leader of Israel

  • Joshua led the Israelites to take possession of God’s promise land

Foundational Events:

  • He is mentioned first in connection with the fight against Amalek at Rephidim, when he was chosen by Moses to lead the Israelites. (Exodus 17:9)

  • He was one of the twelve chiefs who were sent, to explore the land of Canaan (Numbers 13:17)

  • Joshua & Caleb were the only two that returned and believed the Israelites could take the land (Numbers 14:6)

  • Before Moses died, God directed him to give Joshua authority over the Israelites. (Numbers 27:18)

  • Joshua assumed the command of the people at Shittim (Joshua 1:1)

  • A miracle happened at the fall of Jericho and produced fear in the Canaanites that were later defeated

As we journey through Joshua’s life, we are praying that the Lord transforms your minds and hearts with His Word. We are ready and expectant for the journey and growth that God has in store for us during this study.
