Journal Through the Bible: Week 33 Wednesday

Joshua 21:34-22:34

The armed men of Israel that had settled their families on the eastern side of the Jordan River had completed their military obligation to their brethren on the western side so they were released to return to their own possessions. It was not long before the first trans-Jordan misunderstanding occurred.

Does God issue any commands in this passage?

  • (22:5) The people from the east side of Jordan were reminded to diligently obey the commands of the LORD.

Does God make any promises?

  • (21:43-45) The promise is fulfilled to give them all the land that the LORD swore to give them.

Does this passage teach anything about Jesus?

  • Phineas, the high priest, is the type of Christ because he was the mediator for God when the western tribes questioned the eastern tribes about their supposed iniquity.

Does this passage teach anything about yet-future events?

  • None that I identified.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
