The Book of Joshua does not identify its author, as is the example in most of the other books in the Bible. It continues the saga of the Israelites after their exodus from Egypt (with the help of Moses). The book records Joshua’s long term leadership of his people after Moses anointed him at the end of Deuteronomy.
The book is divided into 24 chapters:
Chapters 1 to 12 – Entry into the land and conquest
Chapters 13 to 22 – Division of the land
Chapters 23-24 – Joshua’s farewell
The Israelites are a new generation from their ancestors and have a new leader in Joshua. For Joshua, it seems that Moses is quite a hard act to follow, for he has seen the latter’s exemplary leadership and unwavering faith in God. However, God has put His full trust in Joshua and called him to lead his people into the land. For Joshua, being put into this position is a great honor but also entails great responsibility.
After 40 years of traveling and wandering in the wilderness, the Israelites finally enter the Promised Land, Canaan.
It just proves that with God, all things are possible. We all just have to have faith in Him, just like Joshua did.
