God’s Promises Fulfilled, God’s Glory Revealed
The book of Joshua conveys a narrative of God’s faithfulness toward His people as He fulfills His promises and in so doing, reveals His glory, might and power. In the scope of redemptive history, the book of Joshua gives a glimpse of His final judgment as He destroys the inhabitants of the land. Although long-suffering in nature, the “iniquity of the Amorites” was complete (Genesis 15:16) and God poured upon them just judgment for their sin. Concurrently, God lavished His grace on Israel, the people whom He had, apart from their merit, set apart to be His own.
