September 14, 2014 – Morning Worship
Monday – Joshua 16–17
Read Joshua 16–17. What are the lessons you see there for us as Christians? And for the church?
Tuesday – Joshua 16:1–5; Genesis 48; Isaiah 55:8–9
Read these passages carefully. What do we learn about God in the order the names of Ephraim and Manasseh are placed? What is the application to you?
Speaking of name order and what it symbolizes, Joshua 15:1, 20 clearly shows the tribe of Judah receiving their allotments first in the land of Canaan (i.e. west of Jordan). Why do you think Judah was placed first?
Read the account of Zelophehad’s daughters and their request. Note the similarity with Caleb’s request in Joshua 14:6–12. How are they both alike? What can we learn from them?
Compare the Joshua passages with the Exodus passages. What is beginning to happen? What is the application to you?
What is going on in Joshua 17:14–18? What’s the concern of Joseph’s people? What’s Joshua’s response? Who is right and who is wrong? What’s the application?
