Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

March 11 - Evening

“When Jabin king of Hazor heard of this, he sent word to Jobab king of Madon, to the kings of Shimron and Akshaph, and to the northern kings who were in the mountains, in the Arabah south of Kinnereth, in the western foothills and in Naphoth Dor on the west; to the Canaanites in the east and west; to the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites and Jebusites in the hill country; and to the Hivites below Hermon in the region of Mizpah. They came out with all their troops and a large number of horses and chariots—a huge army, as numerous as the sand on the seashore. All these kings joined forces and made camp together at the Waters of Merom to fight against Israel… So Joshua and his whole army came against them suddenly at the Waters of Merom and attacked them, and the Lord gave them into the hand of Israel. They defeated them and pursued them all the way to Greater Sidon, to Misrephoth Maim, and to the Valley of Mizpah on the east, until no survivors were left… At that time Joshua turned back and captured Hazor and put its king to the sword. (Hazor had been the head of all these kingdoms.) Everyone in it they put to the sword.
They totally destroyed them, not sparing anyone
that breathed, and he burned Hazor itself.”
- Joshua 11:1-5, 7-8, 10-11

The Northern Territory Secured and Hazor Burned    

Jabin was the King of Hazor and the leader of the northern confederation of the Canaanite kingdom. Jabin brings together the armies of the Canaanites from the west, the north and the south to meet Joshua as at the Waters of Merom in an effort to defeat Israel. Hazor was ten miles north of the Sea of Kinnereth (or, Sea of Galilee). Hazor was the head of all the Canaanite cities and it covered 200 acres (compared to mighty Jericho which covered only six acres) (Click on image below for larger view.)
After defeating all the kings at the Waters of Merom, Joshua pursued them to the north, but stopped to burn Hazor. Archaeological excavations indicate that Hazor was burned around 1400 BC and was not rebuilt until around 950 BC, although there was a Canaanite presence in a reoccupied Hazor until 1200 BC. This matches the biblical description that states that Joshua burned Hazor; Deborah and Barak fought Canaanites from Hazor in Judges 4-5; and, Solomon rebuilt the city. It is worth noting that the Bible only records Joshua burning Jericho, Ai and Hazor. The Lord did not command that the other cities to be burned, in fact, he promised Israel that they would live in these conquered Canaanite cities. Burn layers can be found at Jericho and Hazor, but very little burn damage from the time of Joshua is found in other cities throughout the land of Israel.

  Christian Quote from Church History

"We have too many preacherettes preaching too many sermonettes to too many Christianettes
smoking cigarettes."
- Leonard Ravenhill




Something to Ponder??

From the best of the theologians of the 1000's comes this quote from Anselm (1033-1109 AD) proof of God’s existence a priori:

“This proposition is indeed so true that its negation is inconceivable. For it is quite conceivable that there is something whose non-existence is inconceivable, and this must be greater than that whose non-existence is conceivable. Wherefore, if that thing than which no greater thing is conceivable can be conceived as non-existent; then, that very thing than which a greater is inconceivable is not that than which a greater in conceivable; which is contradiction. So true is it that there exists something than which a greater is inconceivable, that its non-existence is inconceivable: and this thing art Thou, O Lord our God!”

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Rabbei (Gr) – Rabbi (Eng) – rabbei is a Greek word that comes from rab which means
“master.” Teachers were addressed Rabbei as a sign of respect.


When Nahash, the Ammonite king in First Samuel 11, besieged Jabesh Gilead on the east side of the Jordan, the Israelites asked him for peace. Nahash offered Jabesh Gilead a treaty only if they would allow him to gouge out each of their right eyes
(1 Sam. 11:2). Maiming an enemy was a common practice at this time. The loss of the right eye would leave these people militarily helpless, since they would not be able to sight and aim an arrow. Soldier would lose their depth perception. They would have a harder time defending themselves with a shield since their good left eye would be hidden behind a shield held with their left arm. This would be a cruel and extreme form of disarmament. But, Saul saved the day and became a national here, and Israel’s first king. Josephus address this issue here.

This is a view from the synagogue in Capernaum looking south over the ruins of the city at a modern church built over the site of Peter's house in Capernaum. Mark 1:29 says,
"As soon as they left the synagogue, they went with James and John to the home of Simon and Andrew."
(see Mark 1:21-35)
This is because Peter's house was 84 feet from the synagogue.
The Sea of Galilee is in the background.
