This is a 3 credit course on the book of Joshua., which will take the student through the fascinating events & spiritual truths revealed in this time period of Israel’s journey with God. We are living in an age where all those professing Christ do not accept the Bible as being the inspired Word of God. This is true regarding the book of Joshua. Two commentaries, JOSHUA An Introduction & Commentary from the Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries series [which is the primary commentary] and JOSHUA Inheriting the Land from the International Theological Commentary series [which is a supplemental commentary] were used for this course. The Tyndale commentary reflects the conservative interpretation of the book of Joshua while the International Theological Commentary reflects a more liberal interpretation of the book. CBCS holds to a conservative theological position but books reflecting other views are used to expose you to what others teach because sooner or later you will be coming into contact with those who do not share your conservative interpretation of the scriptures. It is hoped that through the use of these two textbooks you will become grounded more firmly in your conservative interpretation of scripture and will have a better understanding of liberal interpretation since we are living in a pluralistic society.
Articles from the NEW UNGER’S BIBLE DICTIONARY, NELSON’S ILLUSTRATED BIBLE
DICTIONARY and the HOLMAN BIBLE DICTIONARY are provided to give you a deeper insight into the conservative interpretation of the book of Joshua. May you enjoy your study on the book of Joshua and may you rightly divide the Word of Truth.
Study questions for this course are taken from the book of Joshua and are based on the King James Version and the New King James Version of the Bible. A few answers may be found in Bible dictionaries and commentary materials.
